Labour Campaign for Trans Rights launches to challenge transphobic rhetoric within party
A grassroots campaign for trans rights has launched inside the Labour Party, in response to concerns about a growing anti-trans movement within the party.
Launching this week, the Labour Campaign for Trans Rights warned that the party has “failed to act as transphobia has gained ground” within Labour, despite the party’s official support for trans equality and gender recognition reforms.
Labour MPs urged to pledge support for trans equality.
The group has published ten pledges that MPs and members are urged to sign in order to “rid the Labour Party of transphobia and to stand up for trans people”.
They include accepting “that trans women are women, trans men are men, and non-binary people are non-binary”, and that “there is no material conflict between trans rights and women’s rights”.
