In a thoughtfully constructed letter to West Midland constituents, the UK shadow Minister for Women and Equalities, Taiwo Owatemi, has affirmed her unequivocal support for trans and gender diverse people.
In her response the minister made clear that lobby groups such as LGB Alliance, who stand in opposition to Gender Affirming Healthcare for adults and young people, a ban on Conversion Therapy, reform to the Gender Recognition Act, LGBT+ inclusive education in schools, and same sex/gender marriage are in themselves opposed her own inclusive and intersection beliefs, the pro trans rights stance of the UK Labour Party and the majority of UK based LGBT+ charities and organisations.
Every single one of these stances is diametrically opposed to my beliefs and the positions of my party.
