Three loud and proud trans trailblazers on thriving and celebrating transness in a cis-dominated world
Trans and non-binary people exist everywhere. Even in your workplace.
But this can be a challenge: a third of UK employers admit they wouldn’t hire someone who is openly trans, and one in eight trans employees report being physically attacked by colleagues or customers in the last year.
Trans and non-binary people are estimated to make up around one per cent of the UK population, a minority community made up of different communities, often overlooked or maligned by those in power.
This Trans Awareness Week, PinkNews has been speaking to trans and non-binary people about trans love, activism, community organising, mutual aid, and art. And now, we talk to three creatives about their working life.
