Trans Day of Visibility – 31st March 2021
Trans people were recognised by the UK government in 2004 through the Gender Recognition Act.
However, the process to change gender is very embarrassing. There are lots of humiliating things that must be done, such as ‘presenting evidence’ that someone has lived their gender for at least 2 years. You must also prove you want to live that gender the rest of your life, provide medical reports and pay £140.
The Gender Recognition Act also does not recognise non-binary people. The Act is now widely regarded as outdated and in need of an update.
As a result, there is still much more to do in the fight for gender equality.
Havant Labour recognises the disgusting amounts of prejudice & discrimination faced by the trans community & stand in solidarity with all trans people.
We will use our platform to raise awareness & respect the experiences faced by members of the community.
Trans rights are human rights.
