What’s the difference between direct and indirect prejudice?

Sometimes prejudice can be subtle such as the use of negative portrayals of LGB people in the media. At other times, it can be direct such as bullying, verbal abuse and or physical attack. Generally, direct homophobia and biphobia  are classed as incidents.  Some incidents are criminal offences and the police can respond.  However, there are other ways of dealing with them within the legal system.
