Homophobic & transphobic hate crime

A new petition has been launched on petitions.pm.gov relating to homophobic, and transphobic hate crime. I’ve signed it, maybe you’d like to as well. Even if the laws aren’t changed it’ll be interesting to see how PM Gordon Brown responds.

From the petition:

In remembering the 40th anniversary of the Decriminalisation of
Homosexuality and those who have been murdered and had their lives destroyed by homophobia, including David Morley and Jodi Dubrowski, we the undersigned urge the Prime Minister to introduce specific homophobia and transphobia hate crime legislation. We believe that the law should be re-written now to target incitement of hatred on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity.
