Tim Farron’s statement for Transgender Day of Remembrance

Transgender Day of RemembranceToday is the day when transgender people who have lost their lives through hate-fuelled violence are remembered.

Tim Farron has said:

Too many transgender lives have been lost to hate and prejudice around the world. Today, on Transgender Day of Remembrance, we reflect on that and remember those killed and focus on what steps we can take, both in the UK and internationally, to halt this tragic and unnecessary loss of life.

I’m proud that Liberal Democrats have led and continue to lead the way on trans equality, opposing the spousal veto and continuing to campaign to introduce X Gender markers on passports.

He has also responded to the shocking news yesterday that transgender woman Vicky Thompson had been found dead at Armley jail in Leeds, a men’s prison.

He has called for an urgent question in the House of Commons.
