Inclusivity: supporting BAME trans people

Publication year:
Place of publication:

A guide for LGBTQ and trans community groups, societies, organisations and charities to help them to better support Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) trans people and to become more inclusive organisations. The guide takes an intersectional approach which recognises that identities are complicated and can include gender, race and faith. It also acknowledges that BAME trans people have different experiences to the other members of the trans community, and are more likely to face discrimination on the basis of their race, gender, and often their religion. The guide provides advice to help promote groups to BAME trans people; increase the recruitment of volunteers and staff; and on how to better support BAME trans people attending groups. It includes a list of inclusive LGBTQ and BAME organisations around the UK; information on how to help BAME LGBT people to feel safe in social spaces; and provides examples of good and bad practice. The guide will also be relevant for BAME trans people and the people that support them, such as employers and family. (Edited publisher abstract)
