Harassment and Violence

Homophobic or transphobic harassment and violence against LGBT people are crimes and if you are the victim of such a crime you can report it to An Garda Síochána. If you call the LGBT Helpline, our volunteers will listen and provide you with support if you have been the victim of a homophobic or transphobic crime.


While many LGBT people are willing to report a homophobic or transphobic incident to the Gardaí, other people for a variety of reasons can experience difficulty in informing the Gardaí of such an incident. Homophobic and transphobic harassment and violence against LGBT people are crimes and if you are the victim of such a crime you can report it to An Garda Síochána. LGBT people are entitled to the same protection and professional service from the Gardaí as everyone else in the community and the Gardaí endeavour to provide this to LGBT people at all times.

Garda Gay Liaison Officers

To ensure the delivery of an inclusive service to LGBT people, the Gardaí have appointed LGBT Liaison Officers throughout the country. These officers have been trained on issues relating to LGBT people and are there to give advice and assistance in the event of you having difficulty reporting a crime. A full list of LGBT Liaison Officers is available to download on the righthand side of this page.
