Summary
Shows that serious police abuses, including gender-based violence amounting to torture and ill-treatment, against the LGBT community persist. The abuses reported ranged from sexually explicit, abusive language and threats to sustained beatings and rape. The common factor is that the reason for the abuse is police reaction to their sexual orientation or gender identity. AI's research has shown that police responses to crimes against LGBT people, including domestic violence, are often inadequate, and indeed sometimes hostile. AI is particularly concerned against people who have come forward with complaints against police officers
