Following the prime minister’s “callous” comments about the trans community earlier this week, Just Like Us ambassador Deia Penn stresses the need for more “healthier discussions about identity” from government officials.

WORDS BY DEIA PENN HEADER BY YOSEF PHELAN On Wednesday, the Prime Minister stood up in Parliament and mocked trans people in the presence of Esther Ghey, the mother of murdered trans teen Brianna Ghey.

In his attempt to score political points, he showed a lack of human empathy. It’s something that now commonly characterises our conversations about trans people, an already vulnerable group.

I was saddened by his words and his refusal to apologise, because I know that better conversations about LGBTQIA+ issues – and people – are possible.
