Birmingham LGBT’s Statement on Recent EHRC GuidancePosted on 08-04-2022 by Maria Hughes
We are deeply concerned by the recent activity from the EHRC, including the recent scrapping of trans-inclusive guidance for schools, and Monday’s published webpage “Separate and single-sex service providers: a guide on the Equality Act sex and gender reassignment provisions”. This new webpage goes further than their own pre-existing statutory code of practice (which remains in place) and in our view reads as a “how-to” guide on excluding transgender people.
We will continue to advocate for best practice for the inclusion of trans people.
Any West Midlands based trans/non-binary people who wish to access wellbeing or counselling support, do not hesitate to contact us at 0121 643 0821.
