Over recent months, the public debate around gender identity has intensified. We want to issue a strong statement of support to our trans and non-binary colleagues working within health and care across North East London. 


Research by Stonewall and TransActual shows that the trans and non-binary community experience inequality and high levels of discrimination across all areas of life, including within the workplace.  

In addition, the media and prominent voices on social media often sensationalise and misrepresent the conversation on gender identity. This has led to hostility towards the trans and non-binary community, and a prominent rise in transphobic hate crime. 

It’s important that we feel able to bring our authentic selves to the workplace – for some people that can be harder than others due to fear of stigma of being judged or treated differently.  

As we head towards International Day against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) We must do all we can to encourage colleagues to be LGBTQ+ allies and be proud to be working within kind, fair, and inclusive organisations.  

Attend our 1 hour guided reflection and Q&A session on “Grounding in a volatile world” this International Day against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) on Tuesday 17 May – from 4.30pm -5.30pm  – and reflect on the experiences faced by our LGBTQ+ community,
