Liverpool Mayor passed the pro-trans motion


After an anti-trans billboard and “women don’t have penises” stickers were put up in Liverpool, the city’s council has approved a motion to state officially that for the Liverpool citizens in general and for the Mayor in part transgender women ARE women. The cross-party motion was unanimously passed on September 19th, forbidding transphobic bigotry across the city. The “Standing With Our Trans Community” motion also requests that the council’s planning officers “actively encourage” businesses to launch gender-neutral bathroom facilities.It comes after a billboard, paid for by supporters of anti-trans group Standing For Women, was put up in Gredington Street in the Dingle area of the city on September 14. Standing For Women regularly posts transphobic content on social media and opposes the government’s proposed reforms to the Gender Recognition Act 2004, which is currently out for consultation.
