Alternative subculture

We consider violence against alternative subcultures as a hate crime strand. This enables officers to give more support to victims of anti-punk or anti-goth crime. However, it won’t change the punishment for those convicted of such acts, because alternative subculture has not been recognised nationally as a hate crime strand.

These include:

  • Goths
  • Emos
  • Punks 
  • Metallers

Support available

Listed below is a support agency aimed at victims of alternative subculture hate crime. You can also view our Hate Crime Support Services page which details all hate crime support groups.
