Motion text

That this House recognises Transgender Day of Remembrance on 20 November, a day, observed annually and internationally, to memorialise trans people lost to transphobia; further recognises that, while the murder of trans people for being trans in the UK is rare, suicide is not, and more than one in four (27 per cent) trans young people have attempted to commit suicide and nine in ten (89 per cent) have thought about it, with 72 per cent having self-harmed at least once; believes that the current media climate has not helped; further believes that the trans community needs reassurance and support; and urges all hon. Members to show their solidarity and support for trans people.
