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.”
