• Always let someone know of your movements and where you are at all times.
  • Stay away from dark and/or quiet alleys and streets at night, and even during daytime.
  • Avoid people who’ve made homophobic comments in the past – and know where they live and operate (many hate crimes are committed by people known to the victims).

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.
