Date Set for GRA Discussion with Regional MPs

In April, LCR Pride Foundation and nine other organisations wrote to MPs from the Liverpool City Region, urgently asking them to seek clarity on a statement made by Liz Truss, the Conservative Minister for Women and Equalities, on her plan to progress the reform of the Gender Recognition Act (GRA) this summer.

To date several MPs, including Kim Johnson, Maria Eagle, Angela Eagle and Ian Byrne, have expressed the desire to connect with the Liverpool City Region’s organisations that represent trans, non-binary and gender variant people who will be directly affected by the GRA, to better understand the concerns of the community, before requesting that the minister be held to account.

In light of further concerning news earlier this month, which suggested that the Government is planning to drop gender self-identifying plans we have now confirmed that this discussion will take place virtually on Tuesday 14th July 2020.

LCR Pride Foundation is continuing to follow up with those MPs who have not yet responded, to invite them to join the discussion.

Speaking last month, Lewis Collins, Chair of the LCR Pride Foundation Board of Directors, said: “We would like to thank those MPs who have responded to our letter requesting clarity around the statement made by Liz Truss last month.

“We look forward to bringing them together for an online meeting with organisations representing the trans non-binary and gender variant community in the Liverpool City Region. This will provide them with the opportunity to hear the concerns around the Minister’s plan to progress the GRA, directly from the community that it affects.”

“We encourage anyone from the region’s trans and non-binary communities who would like to have their say to speak to their local support groups or services and to also contact their MP.”
