      Hate crimes against gays and lesbians are on the rise in America, according to the latest report from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

      Released earlier today, the FBI's annual Hate Crime Statistics  report for 2011 shows crimes targeting people on the basis of their perceived sexual orientation increased slightly from 2010.

      Of the 6,216 reported hate crimes with one motivator, 20.8 percent resulted because of a person’s perceived sexual orientation. Although reported "single-bias" hate crimes were down from 6,624 in 2010, incidents resulting from sexual orientation bias were up from 19.3 percent in 2010.

      The increase in crimes against those perceived to be gay or lesbian made sexual orientation bias incidents the second most common hate crime in 2011 for the first time.
