An alternative sub-culture hate incident is any incident where you or someone else has been targeted because of your actual or perceived alternative subculture.

This includes Goths, Emos, Punks, Metallers and some variants of hippie and dance culture.

No two hate incidents are the same but they may include the following:

·         Verbal abuse and name-calling

·         Physical attack

·         Graffiti or other deliberate damage to property

·         Written or recorded threats

·         Cyber Bullying
