BAME trans people

The UK now has its first guide on how to support the black and minority ethnic (BAME) trans population in Britain. 

The 28-page guide, Inclusivity — supporting BAME trans people, was commissioned by the Gender Identity Research and Education Society. It found that too often BAME trans people are pushed to the margins as a minority within a minority. The guide contains practical tips, guidance, and resources and has been made to help improve support and raise awareness for this community. It also includes research and references specific to the UK, as BAME trans research is so often USA-centric.
