In concert with ALL of the leading Transgender organisations across the UK, Focus: The Identity Trust has made contact with All of the candidates in All constituencies in N.I. asking them to sign-up to the principles contained in the UK Manifesto and in our All Island Manifesto.
The three principles are:
1. Regard transgender individuals as equal citizens with equal rights,
2. Empower transgender individuals to be authorities on all aspects of their own lives,
3. Encourage diverse, representative, realistic and positive portrayals of transgender individuals.
We plan to update this site on a regular basis until the election on May 7th letting everyone know who has signed up or declined the invitation to commit to these three basic principles.
This is the first time that Transgender organisations have came together to influence All politicians in Westminster to achieve real change in the lives of Transgender individuals and their families.
