    Grief and despair. That's what a great number of trans, non-binary and intersex individuals in the UK are feeling today. Despite 3 years of promises and consultations by successive Conservative governments, which created a storm of anti-trans hatred and disinformation from the media, the Government has scrapped its plans to reform the Gender Recognition Act.

Our social spaces have largely become inaccessible, or replaced by online gatherings. We are stuck indoors with people we may not be used to spending so much time with. Some of us are stuck with people who are hostile or violent.
