PAUL MATTHEWS, LOTHIAN AND BORDERS POLICE LGBT LIAISON OFFICER, GIVES THE FACTS ON A SITUATION CURRENTLY RECIEVING A LOT OF MEDIA ATTENTION.
Be careful who you trust. Most attackers are known to the victims. If you do feel strange or unwell, don't seek help from your 'date' or 'helpful' strangers; they could be responsible. Go to a place of safety as soon as possible and, most importantly, report it.

OR E-MAIL PAUL MATTHEWS;
is a partnership project representing the LGBT community in Scotland. Views expressed are not necessarily those of the partners. However, if they're witty, intelligent and insightful - they probably are. If you flicked through this mag, saw a photie and made an assumption about someone's sexuality - then you're about ten years behind what we're trying to do here. Click the mag off and walk away. Accurate at going online time, but hey, we didn't get this sarky without making mistakes.
