What is the rate of hate crime in Nottingham, and in the UK in general? Why do people avoid reporting it, and what can people within and outside the LGBT community do to spread awareness but also prevent crime? Over the course of the evening, David Edgeley from Rainbow Heritage will discuss how barriers to coming out affect the rate of reporting hate crime, and Sam Hope (an activist on LGBT rights) will focus on their work in campaigning against hate crime in Nottingham.
