Today has been a really positive day at the Green Party Autumn Conference, and I would like to quickly thank everyone who supported the C4 – Trans Identities are Valid motion, and helped us get it passed! It had 8 people oppose it, but over ONE THOUSAND people support it!
That means that the top of our trans policy will read;
RR520 The Green Party recognises that there are many Gender Identities, that are within, and outside of the traditional Gender Binary of man and woman. The Green Party recognises that Trans Men are Men, Trans Women are Women, and that non-binary identities exist and are valid. We shall respect transgender and non-binary people’s identities as real. The Green Party shall include, and push for further acceptance of, transgender and non-binary people within all areas of society.
Again let me say
Thank you for the support. Be it through co-proposing the motion, voting it high up in the prioritisation ballot, voting for it at Plenary, or providing support to myself and our other trans, and non-binary members.
