Standing with the Trans Community


To mark Trans Day of Remembrance (20th November), Islington Council is once again flying the Trans Flag above the Town Hall. 

The council has recently adopted a new policy to support trans staff, to help create a supportive and safe working environment for trans people. 

Cllr Osh Gantly, Labour councillor for Highbury East and one of the first trans elected representatives in the country, said:

"Trans Day of Remembrance is an opportunity for us all to highlight the continued persecution and attacks that trans people suffer. I am proud to represent my local community, and to do so as a trans woman is very important to me.

"The council's new policy to support trans staff is very welcome, and it's a great credit to our borough that once again the trans flag will be flying from the Town Hall."
