Trans Pride London 2022
To me, the trans community is like a big bag of pick n’ mix – some are sweet, some are sour, some are soft, some are crunchy. We are strawberry laces and chocolate nougat and caramel buttons. Fruity gummy bears and rainbow Skittles. On days like Trans Pride London, surrounded by my family of trans candy; I felt as happy as a kid in a sweet shop.
Nigeria’s LGBTQ+ community hold protest against anti-LGBTQ+ bills
At first there was mixed feelings due to concerns about safety, not least as many of us faced harassment when we joined the ‘end SARS’ protest in 2020. Eventually we agreed. We are so tired of hiding, running away and living in fear; we had to do something and so we planned a protest for May 1st 2022. The first ever protest of its kind to be held in Nigeria!

Debunking the “41%” transgender suicides figure
The way the "41%" figure is used by transphobes is an attempt beat us down even further than they already do. But its just not what the data says. The data says that suicide isn't the inevitable out come of a transgender life, that you can and should fight for your survival because there is a light at the end of the tunnel and one day you will be free.

“Queer existence is resistance”; inside Trans Action Warwick’s protest of Nadhim Zahawi MP
Trans Action Warwick regard this protest as a success. They say they achieved their aim of disrupting the event, using it to make a statement that we need to oppose transphobia and those who weaponise it against us. They believe we can’t gain liberation by attending and asking "difficult questions" alone and that doing so risks legitimising the answers and normalising the negative way transphobes talk about trans people.

My complaint to Ofcom re: ‘that’ BBC article
I am writing to complain about the article originally headlined; "We are being pressured into sex by some trans women". In this letter I intend to set out what my issues with the piece were and how the 'solutions' offered by the BBC's ECU have not at all addressed that problem. The outcome I am searching for is a full retraction and apology for the piece. In my opinion this article does not mean journalistic standards and serves only to elevate gossip of known anti-trans agitators to a position it simply does not belong.
