Trans rights protestDownload
© Licensed to London News Pictures; 18/07/2020; Bristol, UK. A Trans Rights protest rally takes place on College Green. Speakers include Shon Faye - writer, presenter, editor, artist, comedian and activist
- Travis Alabanza - artist, performer, writer and theatre maker. The protest is one of many taking place across the UK today and is in protest against reported plans by the UK Government to drop reforms to the Gender Recognition Act and to introduce a law that will restrict the rights of trans women to use women’s facilities, such as public toilets, changing rooms and refuges. Proposals to reform the Gender Recognition Act (GRA) would allow people to change their legal gender by “self-identifying” as male or female and would let transgender people change their birth certificate without a medical diagnosis. But the Government looks set to drop these, despite 70 per cent of responses to a recent consultation of the GRA being in favour of self-identification. Campaigners say the UK Government intends to scrap the GRA reform and roll back the hard-won rights of trans and non-binary people. The Government is also allegedly planning to introduce a law that will restrict the rights of trans women to use women’s facilities, such as public toilets, changing rooms and refuges. The event is calling for trans people to be able live their lives without being subjected to discrimination and abuse. Photo credit: Simon Chapman/LNP.
