In the year since the idea of a Trans Pride in the Merseyside & Cheshire area was first discussed, we have seen a manifold increase in the level of transphobia we as a community face. In the US, the Trump administration has waged war on the LGBT+ community in general & the transgender community in particular. The media in the UK has whipped up hatred against our community with a one-sided campaign of lies & distortions around the consultation for the governments Gender Recognition Act. Locally we have had to deal with an ongoing campaign of intolerance from a small group of idiots, who wish to consolidate gender inequalities, rather than challenge those inequalities arm in arm with the majority of feminists.
Our march is a celebration of who we, as a community are - diverse, inclusive & beautiful! It is also a howl of pain at the unprovoked attacks, we have faced over the last 12 months.
We as a community of all ages, are marching to show the world how proud we are to be transgender & that we will not be bullied or silenced x
