Laura Russell, Director of Campaigns, Policy and Research at Stonewall, said: ‘It was great to see cross-party support for Trans Day of Visibility yesterday, with parliamentarians from across Westminster and the National Assembly for Wales sending messages of staunch solidarity with trans communities.
‘The voices of these parliamentarians using their own hashtags joins a growing chorus of people saying loudly and proudly that we will not be divided. Any threats to the equality of one minority, is a threat to us all.
‘If you are someone who believes in equality and human rights for all, now is the time to show solidarity with trans people. Together, we can move forward and progress trans equality. This is a crucial part of how we build a society where every person can live free from fear and prejudice.’
