EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Introduction This is a report about bias-related incidents targeting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) individuals in the U.S. Its author is the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs (NCAVP), a net- work of over 20 anti-violence organizations that monitor and respond to incidents of bias and domestic violence, HIV-related violence, pick- up crimes, rape sexual assault, and other forms of violence affecting the LGBT community. Thirteen NCAVP members collected detailed information about anti- LGBT incidents occurring in their cities and regions throughout 2004 and 2005, and this data constitutes the basis for most of the analysis in this report. The regions participating in this year's report are Chicago, IL, Cleveland, OH, Colorado, Columbus, OH, Houston, TX, Kansas City, MO, Los Angeles, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, NY, Pennsylvania, San Francisco, CA, and Vermont. This is the first year for full participation by the Kansas City and Vermont programs.
