Following an amazing Pride Weekend, including the Pride in London Parade on Saturday and Black Pride on Sunday, Spectra re-affirm our commitment and support for all trans people.
As a peer service organisation, whose work focuses heavily on the equality of all marginalised communities, especially the rights and well-being of trans communities, we are appalled at the actions of a small group on a day dedicated to pride in inclusivity and diversity.
The out-pouring of hurt and anger that the actions of a small anti-trans group have caused only serves to strengthen our resolve and is a clear reminder of how urgently the Gender Recognition Act reform is needed to protect trans people of all ages and of how much further we have to travel together. We stand with our trans staff, service users, volunteers and colleagues.
Onwards. There is much to do and together we are more than equal to it.
Karen Skipper, CEO Spectra
