Review of 'Speaking Out: Stopping Homophobic and Transphobic Abuse In Queensland'
Dwyer, Angela E. (2012) Review of 'Speaking Out: Stopping Homophobic and Transphobic Abuse In Queensland'. Queensland University of Technology Law and Justice Journal, 12(2), pp. 115-119.
Speaking Out documents the outcomes of the largest ever study to examine homophobic and transphobic abuse and reporting in Queensland, Australia. It reports the results of a quantitative survey on victimisation of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and queer (LGBTIQ) people and how this victimisation is reported to police. Follow-up qualitative interviews and focus groups were also conducted with LGBTIQ people to examine the impact of this abuse and the reporting to police. This research is timely as we can sometimes assume LGBTIQ victimisation is a historical problem and may be settled by the idea that relations with police are in good shape. This book clearly demonstrates that we have some way to go before we can be assured these issues have been resolved...
