How do I report it?

If you have been a victim of an LGBTI hate crime, let us know. We can help.

If you have been the victim of a hate crime, you have the right to seek justice.

  1. You have the right to report the incident to the police.
  2. The police cannot refuse to serve or help you or turn you away because you are LGBTI.
  3. After reporting the incident, the police must provide you with a case number and contact person.
  4. If you were the victim of sexual assault, such as rape, you have the right to Post-Exposure Prophylaxis (drugs that reduce your chance of contracting HIV) and the right to a medical examination.
  5. If the police or health services refuse to assist you or do not treat you with dignity and respect, contact one of the Love Not Hate partners or e-mail us directly.
  6. If you are too afraid to report the crime on your own, contact one of the Love Not Hate partners and they will assist you with reporting the case to the police. (If you are not comfortable with reporting the crime to the police, Love Not Hate will simply keep a record of the crime.)
