City Hall says London mayor Boris Johnson is working on a new strategy to cut homophobic attacks. Officials are in talks with gay campaign groups and charities including Stonewall and Galop.
In his Police and Crime Plan, launched in March last year, the Mayor made dealing with hate crime, including against LGBT people, a priority and he has already delivered on his commitment to work with the Met to ensure that there is a designated LGBT liason officer for every borough.
The Deputy Mayor for Police and Crime in Stephen Greenhalgh is expected to reveal more when he represents the mayor at the Pride in London parade on Saturday.
