The 8 contenders of the Tory leadership race; who is best for transgender people?

If you are transgender and despaired at reading all this, I can only apologise. However, as a community, we will get through it.

For Women Scotland case lost, what does it mean?

For Women Scotland case has been lost. This was an appeal in which they argued that women with a GRC should not be considered of the female sex for the purposes of the Equality Act 2010.

Goodbye Volcano High; trans teens at the end of the world

It’s not often that I experience a piece of art that feels as tailored to my own lived experiences as Goodbye Volcano High, a game about dinosaur teens trying to chase their dreams and been seen for who they are, as they endure the slow burn trauma of living through the possible incoming extinction of their species.
