After criticism from the right, Labour leader Keir Starmer has backtracked on trans rights. In a BBC radio interview, he said: “A woman is an adult female, so let’s clear that one up." There has also been a notable shift in their position on gender recognition reform - they no longer support the self-ID of trans people and Anneliese Dodds, Shadow Secretary of State for Women and Equalities, has spoken of protecting "biological women."
LGBT+ Labour group have called the shift "very concerning", and say they will "push the Labour Party to continue to go further for our trans siblings, including on de-medicalised self-ID." Stonewall have said the UK has "gone from leading to lagging" on gender recognition.
