Stonewall’s findings are deeply concerning. Transphobia is not OK and will never be OK – Dawn Butler

Dawn Butler MP, Shadow Minister for Women and Equalities, commenting on the publication of Stonewall’s LGBT in Britain: Trans Report, said:

“Stonewall’s findings are deeply concerning. Transphobia is not OK and will never be OK.

“Labour is committed to tackling this issue and to supporting the Trans community. We urge the government to ensure that the new guidance being developed on Sex and Relationship Education is LGBT+ inclusive.

“Reforming the Gender recognition Act will be key to ensuring Trans equality. But we are still waiting on the government to publish the consultation on updating the Act. The government must
follow through on its commitment to reform.”
