Alex talks about how important transgender rights are and how they are protected under the Equality Act.
“Under the Equality Act, gender reassignment discrimination is when you treat people unfairly or without respect because they are transgender. This can include being rude about physical,mental and other characteristics or disrespecting the gender that we identify as. It is our right to be called by our preferred pronoun and new name and it is against the law if you don’t do this on purpose. We also have the right to get married to who we like.”
“We are able to change our name. Some people respect this. However others don’t and do not try to remember the new name.” This is an example of discrimination. Alex has said that “most people are trying to use my new name correctly.”
