"There is no LGB without the T”, says Labour MP Nadia Whittome, who believes that the LGBTQ+ community needs to show more solidarity towards its trans members.
There’s a lot of inequality that trans members face from the healthcare system, hate crime and even employment. One in three employers openly admit that they would not hire a trans person.
Trans activists have historically had to fight for their specific demands and concerns to be platformed by many LGBTQ+ groups. Stonewall, the largest and oldest LGBTQ+ organisation in Europe recognised this, apologised and promised to do better.
