The Greens are still relevant and are a worthy progressive force in British politics, we're holding people and parties to account whether it's by calling out the government for bringing the NHS to its knees or fighting an extreme Brexit., we're supporting our allies in other parties when we agree, and we'll always stand up for what matters and fight for an inclusive, tolerant society with a positive vision for a sustainable future.

Trans people, including trans young people, don't want to face abuse, we don't want to have our identities questioned on national media, so why on earth do people still believe we "choose" to be trans? Why would anyone choose to go through all this? What we need is support. We need allies, we need our human rights to be respected.

Mermaids is a highly valued charity that offers specialist advice and support to trans people and their families and we hope it will continue to be able to perform this vital role.

Far, far more needs to be done. If we are to create a society in which transgender and non-binary people enjoy the same rights as their cisgender friends, a number of changes must urgently take place.

I hope that Nicky Morgan will publish the Government's response soon, Transphobia is not inevitable, nor is it unbeatable, we need our legal rights. We need to continue working with trans activists and allies to continue the fight for real equality.

We live in an amazingly diverse society, surely our politics should reflect that? Luckily more and more people are agreeing - but there's still some small changes we need to make to get there.
