Trans allies are crucial to achieving trans equality. Stonewall’s Trans Allies programme explores the steps individuals can take to be effective allies to trans people. Q:alliance Chair, Helen Pritchard, went along to the London session to find out more.
Helen described the day as a great experience, getting the opportunity to not only meet a variety of people from different backgrounds but also exploring how to be a Trans ally within the workplace and everyday life.
