Anti-Gay Murders Increase

The number of people murdered in anti-LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender] bias incidents increased by 28% in 2008 compared to the previous year, according to a report released on Tuesday by the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs. The 29 murders represent the highest number documented since 1999 and, when compared to statistics for other anti-LGBT crimes, suggest an increase in the severity of violence.
