Why are crimes targeting LGBTI people called hate crimes?

  • They are based on the actual (or perceived) gender or sexual orientation of the victim.
  • They originate from hatred of “otherness,” fear of what is different, misinformation, or ignorance.
  • They can be physical attacks (assault, rape, murder), verbal attacks (hate speech, calling names), or any form of discrimination or victimisation.
  • They infringe on the rights of all LGBTI people.

If you’ve experienced a hate crime because of your sexual orientation or gender identity these organisations can help. Call one of them now or visit www.asiphephe.org.za.
