New report from FBI shows increase in anti-LGBTQ+ attacks

Earlier this week, the bureau released the Hate Crime Statistics, 2019, from the Uniform Crime Reporting Program (UCR). The data, which was submitted by 15,588 law enforcement agencies, shows that 16.7% of victims were attacked because of their sexual orientation, the third largest category after race and religion.

Victims who were targeted because of their gender identity made up 2.7%, a half-percentage point increase from 2018. Tracking and reporting hate crimes isn’t required by state and local law enforcement agencies, so these figures are likely to be much higher.
