Rishi Sunak trans rights
Rishi Sunak reportedly intends to eliminate the 2010 Equality Act’s legal protections for transgender rights.
Rishi Sunak, the recently appointed British prime minister, has said something disturbing about transgender rights.
He stated that he intended to change the Equality Act in order to remove the legal safeguards that currently shield Trans individuals in the UK from discrimination.
Since the passage of the current Equality Act in 2010, transgender persons have had secure access to same-sex areas like bathrooms, hospital wards, and emergency shelters.
The agreement also offers legal protections against workplace discrimination, which is crucial given the growth in transphobia in the UK.
