Scottish Trans, the trans equality project of LGBTI equality and human rights charity the Equality Network, will hold an event outside the Scottish Parliament on Thursday, Oct.
27 in support of the Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill before the bill comes up for a vote later today. Members of SNP, Scottish Labour and Scottish Greens will speak at the rally on why they support the reforms.
To accompany speeches, two local artists, Latoy and Evay, will be creating a visual piece on the theme of recognition during the event, which attendees can creatively contribute to with their own reasons why they support the bill.
The bill fulfills commitments by the SNP, Labour, Greens and the LibDems. The Parliament’s Equalities, Human Rights and Civil Justice Committee took a wide range of evidence on the bill in the spring and summer, and recommends that MSPs support the bill in the stage 1 vote.
