Last week, trans activist Munroe Bergdorf was dropped as as a Childline ambassador just three days after she was announced as the charity’s first LGBTQ campaigner, all because a journalist from Times incorrectly labelled her a ‘porn model’.
In a statement, the NSPCC said: “Munroe Bergdorf has supported the most recent phase of Childline’s campaign which aims to support children with LGBTQ+ concerns. Munroe has been referred to as a Childline Ambassador.
“At no point has she been an Ambassador for the Charity. She will have no ongoing relationship with Childline or the NSPCC.
“The NSPCC does not support, endorse or authorise any personal statements made by any celebrities who contribute to campaigns. Childline is available to children without condition to provide support whatever the nature of their concerns.”
Munroe wrote in response: “Firstly I have never shot porn in my life, secondly demonising those who do isn’t okay either.
“This Pride Month Childline had the opportunity to lead by example and stand up for the trans community, not bow down to anti-LGBT hate and overt transphobia. But instead they decided to sever ties without speaking to me, delete all the content we made together and back-peddle without giving any reason why.”
