Capturing Hate
Capturing Hate explores how eyewitness videos provide new sources of data on the prevalence of trans-phobic violence.

About Capturing Hate

In an effort to address the shortcomings of federal surveys and to supplement other research on transgender and gender nonconforming people, the WITNESS Media Lab looked to eyewitness videos — and the viewer engagement with those videos — as a source of new data.

We studied videos that are not made with the intention of exposing or prosecuting abuse, but rather to share the abuse for others to witness and engage with as entertainment.


This report contains depictions of war, abuse, examples of, or links to content that features, hate speech.
