Our Trans Inclusion Statement
Wednesday 27th April 2022
Over the past few weeks, the heightened and unacceptable level of trans and non-binary discrimination has been alarming. Including but not limited to: the governments U-turn on not including trans people in the proposed conversion therapy ban. We as a committee and at an individual level are upset and frustrated by these recent events. Given this, we want to take the opportunity to clarify our position as an LGBTQ+ network that spans the insurance sector and to emphasise to our community, firms and people within our industry that we strongly and wholeheartedly disagree with the U-turn taken by the UK government in relation to trans and non-binary individuals, marginalising them more within our society.
With this in mind, Link seeks to:
We encourage our community, especially those with LGB identities, to realise that this is our issue too. Link calls on those in senior positions within our industry who are in a position to evoke change to use their privilege and stand up to protest the government’s U-turn on trans inclusion within the conversion therapy ban as well as support their trans and non-binary staff. Most importantly we call upon the government to uphold its commitment to the entirety of the LGBTQ+ community.
Above all, for all our trans and non-binary friends, colleagues, and family – we support you and are here with you.
Love, as always,
Maxim, Maurice, & the entire Link Community
