Bristol trans rights protest

Hundreds gathered on College Green on 18 July to protest against the government's most recent proposed attack on the rights of trans people.

The Tories propose dropping reform to the Gender Recognition Act, which would have allowed trans people to self-identify and made it easier to change their legal gender.

The protest was static, with attendees socially distancing, most wearing masks.

A few people got up to speak, highlighting the discrimination and abuse they had faced and calling for the recognition that trans rights are human rights.

Socialist Party members joined the protest, handing out leaflets supporting the right of self-identification and for trans rights more generally.

Most attendees were keen to read our leaflet and learn more about our demands.
