For too long we have supposed BAME and trans to be two separate ‘characteristics’. A new project seeks to change all that with a new 28-page guide to support and educate about BAME Trans people.
The guide is packed with practical tips, guidance, and resources dedicated to supporting the Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic (BAME) trans population of Britain: ‘Inclusivity – Supporting BAME Trans People.
This project has been commissioned by the Gender Identity Research & Education Society (GIRES) and put together by graphic designer Soofiya Andry, under the leadership of Sabah Choudrey, an LGBTQ BAME Consultant and Activist.
“GIRES is proud to support this important initiative. We have been delighted to hear BAME trans people now giving voice to their special concerns, with ever greater confidence. Wide promulgation of this important document, via the networks operated by GIRES and many other groups, provides BAME trans people with a different way to convey their concerns to all policy makers, employers and service providers, as well as to families and support groups. We encourage them to listen carefully to what BAME trans people are so clearly saying.”
