The First Minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford, has hit out at the “cruel and often hostile” debate surrounding the rights of trans and non-binary people.
Drakeford, who was presented with a chief executive’s award during the Trans in the City awards, used his speech to reaffirmed his very clear stance.
At the gala held on Monday evening (14 November), the Welsh government was handed the award for their work on delivering its LGBTQ+ Action Plan.
“We want Wales to be a nation where everyone feels free, supported and safe to live their lives as they would choose to do so,” he said upon receiving the accolade.
“We must avoid plunging further into the cruel and often hostile debate” – Mark Drakeford
