A few months ago, the UK Government cancelled its first-ever international LGBT+ conference, ‘Safe To Be Me’.
This followed the UK Government’s decision to exclude trans people from the ban on conversion therapy, and more than 100 organisations – including Stonewall – subsequently chose to boycott the conference.
Rather than actively working with the LGBTQ+ community to protect trans people in the ban, the UK Government has shown that we are not safe to be ourselves.
That’s why Stonewall is supporting the Trans Activism UK's protest to stand up and speak up for LGBTQ+ rights.
Join the protest in Parliament Square, London or get involved online via social media using the hashtag #NotSafeToBeMe
