new anti-homophobia tool unveiled

There’s a new tool in the fight against hate crimes in London.

On May 17, the UN’s International Day Against Homophobia, the Homophobia/Biphobia/Transphobia (HBT)Working Group provided media with a sneak-peek of their new website. The announcement was made during a press conference at the London Police Service headquarters on Dundas Street.

“Essentially this will be a one-stop shop for all things relating to building safer spaces and decreasing hate crimes,” said Daniel Pugh, co-chair of the HBT Working Group. Designed by London-based rtraction, the new website looks more modern and is loaded with helpful tools and information for members of the community. The main feature of the site, which will also be available in a mobile app version, is an online reporting tool that lets people submit a report directly to the police or to the hate helpline.

“I think people are going to be very happy (with the new site),” said Deb Al-Hamza, who co-chairs the HBT working group along with Pugh. “We are very excited about this.”
