‘A Vision for Change’ from Stonewall

Besi Besemar April 6, 2017

Following extensive consultation, the Stonewall Trans Advisory Group publish new trans report A Vision for Change.

In February 2015, following consultation with over 700 trans people, Stonewall, the equality charity announced that it was extending its remit to campaign for trans equality alongside lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) equality.

One of the commitments Stonewall made was to recruit an advisory group, to support Stonewall in its trans-specific work.

The Stonewall Trans Advisory Group held meetings throughout 2015 and 2016 to agree actions for Stonewall to take to support the advancement of trans equality.

A Vision for Change is the result of their efforts.

The document which took over a year to draft was released in February 2017 for public consultation and the Stonewall Trans Advisory Group heard feedback from hundreds of trans people across the UK.

The responses to the consultation are reflected in the final document, A Vision for Change which addresses the issues that most affect trans people and commits Stonewall to acting in line with the agreed ambitions.

The document is based on a shared mission: that trans people have the right to live full and authentic lives at work, home and in public. Written and produced by the Stonewall Trans Advisory Group, it underpins Stonewall’s work for trans equality until 2022.
