Women and Equalities Committee calls for equality for trans people – (14/01/16)

The Transgender Equality Report has been published by the Women and Equalities Committee with many recommendations for improvements:

Committee Chair Maria Miller said:

“The committee took evidence on a very wide range of issues. As well as health, equality and criminal justice, we looked at education, data protection, service provision, official documents, sport – and more. Although Britain leads the world in recognising lesbian, gay and bisexual rights, we are still failing trans people in so many ways. The glamorous stories of trans celebrities are in stark contrast to the day to day experiences of many ordinary individual trans people. Our report challenges attitudes towards trans people and calls for them to be treated equally and fairly.”

The report is available to view and download from the paliamentary website:
