Munroe Bergdorf has warned that the “ramifications of transphobia” will be felt by all LGBTQ+ people unless the community comes together.
The model and activist is one of the UK’s most high profile trans figures and has worked tirelessly to fight for equality in the country.
In 2021, she received the GAY TIMES Honour for British Community Trailblazer and, speaking at the event a year later in November 2022, explained that she sadly “wasn’t in a good place” at the time. “I was finding my career really difficult in navigating it, in navigating success but also being, you know, not in a good place,” she told GAY TIMES on the night’s green carpet. “And…there’s been such a big arc of, you know, self-empowerment and self-belief and just going through so many different checkpoints to get to where I am today.
And I feel really, really happy and supported and hopeful for the future.” Munroe’s debut book, Transitional, is set to be released by Bloomsbury on 16 February 2023.
