The importance of reforming the Gender Recognition Act and trans rights

The need to improve and protect trans rights is clear.

The Government’s LGBT+ Survey found trans people in the UK face unacceptable levels of abuse and discrimination - two in five trans people have had a hate crime committed against them in the last year alone; two in five trans young people saying they have attempted suicide; and shockingly, one in eight trans people have been physically attacked by colleagues or customers at work.

This is unacceptable and must end.
