Forum on violence

Cops meet with gay community

The Centre hosted its first Aaron Webster Community Forum Nov 17 on the seventh anniversary of Webster’s fatal gaybashing.

Representatives from the Vancouver Police Department’s Hate Crime and Domestic Violence units attended, along with Chief Jim Chu to discuss violence in the queer community and its underreporting.

Both gaybashings and domestic violence in the gay community are still being underreported, Chu said, urging community members to tell him how to fix that.

The Centre will host four more community forums on violence between now and Dec 2.
