British trans people fight a wave of toxic stigma

AAlmost every trans person I know tells me same things: “I can’t read or watch news anymore”… “I had to take medicine just to work”… “I don’t feel safe anywhere”… “I’m scared every time I leave home”… “I’m thinking about moving”… “We’re going to live abroad.”

Around time Trump and Brexit arrived in our nightmares, a culture war broke out over human rights of trans people, a war that trans people did not want and where forces clashed. to them, not only usual ranks of the religious right. , the far right and the antediluvian social conservatives, but British government ministers and a surprisingly transphobic mainstream media.
