The concept 'anti-gay violence' can be defined as the assault of a homosexual or heterosexual merely because the person is perceived as having a homosexual orientation (Harry, 1982: 549). Violence of this nature towards gay males and females is currently regarded by researchers as an increasing social problem that merits intensive investigation.
