Review the need for a specific homophobic aggravated offence

Following recent publicity regarding a homophobic incident involving two Manchester residents, we call for the UK Government to review the need for a specific homophobic aggravated offence which provides parity with racist incidents of a similar nature. The review should also take in to account the need for a similar specific offence for bisexual, transgender and disabled victims of hate crime.
