Securing Trans Equality

Introduction

Trans* and gender variant people continue to face discrimination, prejudice and injustice. Whilst significant progress towards trans* equality has been made, for too many trans* people equal treatment, fairness and dignity remain elusive.

Trans* and gender variant members of LGBT Labour, along with other individuals and organisations, have prepared  these proposals on how to further secure equality and inclusion of trans* and gender variant people. We have attempted to avoid devising a lengthy aspirational “wish list” but rather focused on what we believe are some significant but realistic and achievable measures, which can be actioned by a Labour Government. We have been mindful to avoid significant increase in expenditure and many measures can be achieved without extensive legislative changes.

This manifesto document was adopted unanimously at LGBT Labour 2014 AGM as a working policy which can be amended as circumstances and issues change.

LGBT Labour is committed to gathering views to inform this document for the benefit of campaigning within the Labour Party and the wider Labour movement on securing trans* equality and inclusion.

We would like to thank all those organisations and individuals that have helped LGBT Labour put together this comprehensive document.

We welcome any comments you may have on our policy, please e-mail: trans.lgbt.labour@gmail.com.
