UK Launches First-Ever Trans Campaign

The British government is launching its first-ever campaign for transgender equality. Pink News reports:
Entitled “Advancing transgender equality: a plan for action” and released by the Home Office today, it promises tougher sentences for hate crimes, support for trans pupils in schools, and tailored recruitment advice for businesses. The Home Office said the document is intended to create a framework for communities to work with the government to challenge and overcome persisting inequalities. The government’s online surveys this year received 2,172 responses from the trans community, the largest form of engagement with the group ever conducted in the UK.
