In April this year, Intercom Trust launched a regional survey to explore the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the LGBT+ community. After receiving over 400 responses from across the South West, we have produced a report using the findings of the survey, existing research on LGBT+ health inequalities, and our own service user data.

Call to Action

We are informed that the anti-trans proposals listed in last week’s Sunday Times article holds truth. These proposals included ‘new protections to safeguard female-only spaces…’ and ‘abandoning’ a self-determined procedure around GRA reform.

IMPORTANT: Liz Truss MP is due to speak in Parliament about equalities this Wednesday morning. Boris is likely being asked to agree to the proposals within the next 24 hours. If Boris doesn’t sign it off, Liz Truss cannot go forward with it. YOU can help to prevent the UK Gov progressing with these anti-trans proposals, but you have to act quickly.

Here are our suggestions as to what you and/or your organisation can do:

1. URGENTLY call on Boris Johnson not to take forward any of Liz Truss’ proposals by tweeting @BorisJohnson @10DowningStreet and/or emailing via this web-form: https://email.number10.gov.uk/ (copy your email content before you click send as there have been tech issues with the portal. If it does not send, then suggest you send on to his MP address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. making it clear that the portal is not working). If you are a woman, join the campaign on social media: tell Boris that the rolling back of trans rights in the name of women’s rights is not something you support by using the hashtag #NotInMyName

2. Write to your MP (even if you have done already!) And call on them to challenge the proposals

3. Tell your friends, family and colleagues to do (1) and (2) above

Intercom Trust is seeking new Trustees. Are you interested?
