Bristol Trans Support Pledge

Pledge_small
In the past few months trans people have come under increasing attack in the media. So much so that the International Lesbian & Gay Association has downgraded the UK in its annual Rainbow Europe rankings.

We believe that Trans People have the right to be treated equally. This includes:

  1. The right to exist
  2. The right to live freely without fear
  3. The right to be treated with dignity & respect
  4. The right to enjoy the security of UK legislation
  5. The right to speak and be heard

We will be asking the people of Bristol to support this pledge via social media in the run-up to Pride.

For further information about possible changes to the UK’s Gender Recognition Act, please see: https://www.stonewall.org.uk/truth-about-trans.
