Crimes against LGBT community are up, despite social gains - USATODAY.com →

A report last month by the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs, a group that supports victims of anti-LGBT harassment, found:

•Hate incidents against LGBT people and HIV-affected persons increased 13% from 2009 to 2010.

•Murders of LGBT people numbered 27, the second-highest total recorded.

•Half of victims did not report the crimes to police, and 61% of victims who did said they experienced indifferent or abusive police attitudes.

•Offenders were mostly strangers, white and non-transgender men.
