British government met anti-trans activists repeatedly


The UK government has confirmed that officials have repeatedly met with activists from anti-trans pressure groups to discuss the possible changes in the Gender Recognition Act, which, if implemented, could ease the procedure of trans people being legally recognized by the true gender. n response to a written question in Parliament, equalities minister Victoria Atkins confirmed that multiple meetings took place with campaigners from a number of opponents of this issue to find a compromise. Atkins confirmed that since September 2017, Government Equalities Office officials had meetings with activists from Transgender Trend on two occasions, Fair Play For Women on two occasions and A Woman’s Place UK three times. They also met the representatives from the pro-trans groups, such as experts from Stonewall, one with transgender children’s charity Mermaids, and three with trans support group Gendered Intelligence.
