34 Related reports 0 Comments

The Hate Speech Watch is focusing to Homphobia and Transphobia in May. We invite you to report online hate speech against people with different gender identity and sexual orientation. The Internet is full of hatred and incitement towards LGBTQI people and it actually affects freedom of expression of all of us. A survey conducted by the Youth Department of the Council of Europe in 2012 shows that homophobic and transphobic hate speech is one of the most frequently encountered form of hate speech online. Addressing such hate speech is a cause for action for all as it reaches everybody. For this reason protecting freedom of expression including of people with different sexual orientation and gender identity is of utmost importance for all of us who considers Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law the basic principles of the peaceful life of human kind.   View
