New Survey Says Most Gay Men Are Afraid Of Holding Hands In Public

A recent study from Stonewall, who surveyed 5,000 people in Britain, shows the LGBT community continues to suffer disturbing levels of hate crimes and discrimination.

Some key findings from the study:

Twitter users shared their stories.

Ruth Hunt, the Chief Executive of Stonewall had this to say:

“While we have come a long way in the past 25 years, it is clear there is still a huge amount of work we need to do before all LGBT people can feel safe, included and free to be themselves in Britain today. 
"This report warns against complacency, and stands as a call to action for everyone who supports equality. We now need to work together, to bring forward the day when no individual faces hatred or discrimination simply because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
“At Stonewall, we want everyone across Britain who feels impacted by reading this report to join our campaign and pledge to come out for LGBT people everywhere, as visible allies.
“Together we can create a world where LGBT people are accepted without exception.”
