LBGTQ hate violence increased after Pride month

Twenty-two anti-LGBTQ protests, two deaths in detention and 14 murders — all in about nine weeks this summer.

The U.S. National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs (NCAVP) released a report Wednesday which detailed an uptick in hate violence against LGBTQ people during Pride Month.

"For many of us Pride is a time for celebration, a time to honor our roots in the Stonewall Rebellion, and a reminder of the important legislative and cultural victories that are worth celebrating," Beverly Tillery, the New York executive director of NCAVP, said in a statement on the group's website.

The organization works to prevent, respond to, and end all forms of violence against and within LGBTQ communities.
