About:

The government has launched a new inquiry, an online form open to everyone, into proposed changes to the Gender Recognition Act, an act widely criticised as outdated and forcing trans people to go through a humiliating and bureaucratic process to be recognised as their gender. This is a massive opportunity to improve lives for trans people. But, the form closes on the 27th.

So, join us this Wednesday where we will respond to the form en-masse, over discussions on trans experiences and the significance of the GRA. If you are an ally, we encourage you to come, as there is power in numbers and the event will give you much perspective on issues affecting trans people. But, we also request you make space for trans people to lead the discussion.

Co-hosting will be Elio Yague, a UCL student campaigning for GRA reform as part of his coursework. He will cover the history of the GRA and share insights and statistics on the ways in which the act has real impacts on trans lives and has failed to secure the rights of trans people. We will use these statistics, among others, in our responses.

This is short work with huge impacts on trans lives. We hope to see you there.
