By this I mean a typical Anglo-Celtic British person from a protestant background who's of school/university age. Has the problems of homophobia mostly disappeared from British society?
Depends on where you live. In London, none. In some inbred market town in the North, quite a bit.
It's not very acceptable in the middle east .
I've heard that many have been thrown from roof tops and tortured.
Im not sure if it's deemed illegal ....I think it is .
Homophobia and the violent criminality that often arises from it is socially unacceptable to most of Britain.
Usually targeting male homosexuals, there's always a few loud bigots and violent thugs desperate to bring homophobic hate crimes to the streets.
Vicious playground bullies, national action scumbags and a mix of other criminal lowlifes ensure gay bashing remains a significant source of concern in much of the uk.
Convicting Ruby Thomas of murder rather manslaughter would have sent out a clear message to all other gay bashers that London has zero tolerance for homophobic violence.
Catastrophic wasted opportunity to ensure adequate punishment for a gay bashing killer.

Really? Somehow I doubt public displays of homosexuality would be well recieved in certain areas of Tower Hamlets....
The statistics OxFossil cited would suggest London is actually one of the worst regions when it comes to homophobic hate crime. https://www.stonewall.org.uk/sites/default/files/lgbt_in_britain_hate_crime.pdf
"LGBT people who have experienced a hate crime or incident due to being LGBT in the past 12 months"
North East 35%
West Midlands 22%
East Midlands 19%
East of England 19%
South East 19%
North West 18%
South West 18%
