Today is May 17th - International Day Against and Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia - a day to draw attention the hate, discrimination and violence that many LGBT+ people face here and across the world and a time to celebrate LGBT+ lives and identities.
The lack of progress here on Gender Recognition Rights and Trans Healthcare, Fertility Rights, Reproductive Rights, Marriage Equality, RSE in schools and tackling Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia in schools, workplaces and on the streets means that we need to continue speaking up until these injustices are dealt with. We also need to speak up for others across the world, where so many face discrimination and persecution and we need to welcome those who need who need sanctuary.
When we pull together as a community and bring our allies, friends and families with us, we can achieve a lot.
