A Wake Up Call: Hate Crime Law in the Commonwealth – 8 minutes documentary film

Across the Commonwealth LGBT people face violence because of who they are and who they love. Very few Commonwealth countries have legislation to recognise, prevent and punish hate crimes, including those committed on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. Legal reform through the provision of hate crime legislation is one tool to address hate based violence, which impacts everyone in our societies. Watch our new short film, shot in Belize, Seychelles, Singapore, Kenya and India, and find out more. (CW: This film contains scenes of physical violence and mention of abuse and sexual violence against LGBT people which some viewers may find distressing and/or traumatic.)
