Research from La Trobe University shines a light on the troubling behaviour many LGBTI people have to endure, often in plain sight, with about one in three having experienced street harassment. Researcher Bianca Fileborn surveyed 292 people throughout Australia, 54 per cent of whom identified as being sexually diverse, on their experiences. Dr Fileborn said there was little difference between the types of harassment women and LGBTI people experienced. These include staring (65.1 per cent), comments (63 per cent), car horn honking (63.3 per cent), wolf-whistling (41.1 per cent) and unwanted conversation (42.5 per cent).
