  • Scottish government reaffirms support for trans rights

Scotland’s equalities secretary has reaffirmed the SNP government’s commitment to transgender rights, while insisting that those raising genuine concerns about a conflict with women’s rights “shouldn’t suffer knee-jerk accusations of transphobia”.

The row over transgender rights has been sparked by proposed changes to the Gender Recognition Act which would allow people to “self-declare” their preferred gender, rather than having to gain a medical diagnosis of gender dysphoria. There have been concerns raised that this could erase women’s sex-protected rights, including the right to women-only spaces.
