Our trans community continues to be one of the most discriminated and marginalised groups facing bigotry and rejection. Attacks from the media, celebrities, and prominent figures in government bodies means trans people experience a wave of unchallenged abuse, lack of economic support, and exclusion from parts of society. This must end. 

Best Gay Life’s assembly of large and loyal LGBTQ+ communities has transformed our platform into a powerful voice that we use to educate and inform. In doing so, we create real change for our trans family. 

There’s still work to be done. In the words of acclaimed writer ‘Dean Atta’, “One-off gestures does not an ally make.” We are committed to driving change now and forever until our trans family are treated as equals to the rest of society. Together, we are stronger.
