The number of LGBT people who have experienced a hate crime in Wales has risen by 82% in four years, figures have shown. Stonewall Cymru said the number had increased from 11% in 2013 to 20% in 2017. The survey was based on YouGov polling of 1,272 LGBT people in Wales. Stonewall said there was "still a huge amount of work we need to do before all LGBT people can feel safe, included and free to be themselves". The 2017 poll has been timed to coincide with a major new campaign, Come Out for LGBT.
