Trans Pride marches have grown as a response to the commercialisation of Pride and the marginalisation of trans people. Kelly Stubbs argues that every socialist and trade unionist should back the marches.
The current leadership contest within the Labour Party has recently been focused on issues of how to relate to the transgender community.
The sharp end of this has been centred on the way that a minority of those who see themselves as on the left oppose transgender rights, by falsely counterposing trans rights to cis-women’s rights.
This is a false opposition and the candidates who are arguing for support of all women’s rights — both trans and cis, must have our support.
