Yesterday, during Prime Ministers Question Time, PM Rishi Sunak made a joke about trans women in front of Esther Grey – the mother of Brianna Ghey, a trans teen who was murdered last year in a “frenzied” hate crime.
Here, Attitude editor Cliff Joannou responds to Sunak’s remarks and calls for an apology.
Open letter to the Prime Minister Rishi Sunak
Days after Brianna Ghey’s killers were named, you thought it would be appropriate to use trans women as a means by which to score points against the opposition, ridiculing Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer on the “definition of a woman” while the murdered teenager’s mother was present in the Houses of Parliament attending a debate on mindfulness in school.
