Please take a moment to sign this petition titled ‘Transgender Kids: Who Knows Best?’ should not be broadcast until reviewed by experts which currently has over 10,500 signatures. There is a time-limit on this, however as the show is scheduled to broadcast this evening, 12th Jan 2017. You can lodge complaints to the BBC in a number of ways.    

And please read this open letter regarding the decision to justify why a TERF is still being given a platform to speak at one of their events in Manchester. Natacha Kennedy wrote this letter to an LGBT History organisation, and although I’ve worked with them in the past, I too agree with Natacha’s feelings and actions. Also, in my opinion, this most reflects the current sentiment of the trans community.
