A study examined the experiences of lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) people in Manchester, a city in the north of England. The first report from the study examined community safety. It said that hate crime was commonly experienced (almost half of LGB people) but went unreported in over 60 per cent of cases. The study had found gaps in the evidence base around victimization and the report recommended better monitoring of the sexual orientation of service users by public services across the city, as well as improved targeting of services and cross-agency work to increase the reporting of homophobic and biphobic hate crime.
