Anti-trans activist Kellie-Jay Keen-Minshull, who also goes by the name of ‘Posie Parker’, has shifted her attention to Bristol Central for the General Election on 4 July, after threatening to stand as an independent for the Brighton Kemptown seat.

The controversial figure, whose stance on trans rights has been condemned globally – and whose rallies are often ‘bolstered’ by neo-Nazis – this week implied on social media that she is responsible for incumbent Brighton Kemptown Labour MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle being suspended from the Labour Party after a “vexatious and politically motivated complaint” saw him receive an “administrative suspension letter” from the party. The timing of the letter left him with no time to appeal before the General Election on 4 July.

When asked why she had moved on from campaigning to become MP of Brighton Kemptown, Keen-Minshull said on Twitter, formerly X: “I already won Brighton. LRM banned from standing.”

Keen-Minshull escorted from New Zealand by police

Keen-Minshull has been ‘credited’ for popularising the use of the term “adult human female” to define a woman and she has used billboards, posters, stickers and social media to promote anti–trans rights messages. Keen-Minshull has held anti-trans events in the UK, the US, Australia, and New Zealand, where she was escorted out of the country by police after being ‘tomatoed’ by supporters of trans rights.
