Statement of unity and support on Transgender Day of Remembrance

Brighton & Hove is recognised as a beacon for LGBTQ+ communities and a welcoming city where we are able to be true to ourselves, to live authentically and celebrate the strength that real diversity brings to us as a city.

We stand firmly alongside our trans friends, family, colleagues, students, customers, to defend their right for full inclusion and trans equality.

We recognise the challenges and increasing hostility directed at the trans and non-binary community and individuals. We are proud to celebrate our city’s diversity and offer support and solidarity.

Everyone deserves to be valued and treated with respect.  That is not open to debate. Trans lives are not a debate.

In Brighton & Hove we are proud to come out for trans equality.

We welcome you to join us.
