London Trans+ Pride will make its return this summer with a protest march to “celebrate the memory of trans lives taken and uphold the next generation of trans revolutionaries”.
Due to take place on 9 July, it comes at a time when trans rights are continuously seen as a source of ‘debate’ by the government and social commentators.
In the event’s announcement on 11 April, organisers said they will demonstrate against Boris Johnson’s “abhorrent and deliberate” U-turn on protecting people in a ban of so-called ‘conversion therapy’.
Protesters will also call on the government to introduce ‘X’ gender markers for identity documents, as other countries like the United States have.
