Poster 3a93349259-posterAdam and Stuart are attacked in the streets in an LGBT+ related hate crime. They are both left with physical scars but how will they cope with the emotional ones?

The fight for equality is far from over. Hate Crimes against LGBT+ people have surged by 78%; 9% in 2013 to 16% in 2017. These statistics do not paint the full picture as many victims still do not report their attacks.

In 2008, Director Simon Wegrzyn was victim to an LGBT+ related hate crime. In this short film, he shares his story on how the attack has left one permanent scar – the fear to hold hands with the man he loves.
