The Observatory against LGBTIfobia of A Coruña
is a service dedicated to listening, advising, recording and reporting LGTBIphobic incidents or hate crimes. Anonymity and free services are the basis of our work.
Another of our goals is that the service is offered to all people, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. We deal with numerous cases of people who want to know how to better support the LGTBI community.
According to a 2015 FRA study, 90% of hate crimes and incidents go unreported. This reveals two problems: on the one hand, the situation of helplessness for the victims; on the other hand, the lack of updated data on this subject.
The different observatories spread throughout the country, despite their scarce resources, try to make this discrimination visible and demand that the administrations implement policies to protect the LGTBI community.
