At MRN, we are working hard to challenge hate and systems of oppression in all forms, including transphobia. We are incredibly concerned about the rise in transphobic hate and the rollback of LGBTQ+ inclusion in society. This is impacting trans and non-binary people’s experience in the workplace, access to healthcare and housing. We also know that this form of oppression intersects with race, nationality and immigration status to impact trans migrants’ sense of belonging.
Solidarity is unconditional. We must stand with our trans, non-binary and gender diverse communities in their fights for rights and justice. We cannot dismantle racism without dismantling transphobia, since definitions of gender are intimately bound with White supremacy. We cannot dismantle one form of oppression without dismantling all other forms of oppression: they are interlinked and sustained by the same overarching system of power.
As a UK-wide charity, we have a responsibility to stand with the trans+ community and make sure the charity sector is a safe place for all trans and non-binary people. Join us and say no to anti-trans hate.
