Background Information

The Trans Manifesto was initially launched in April 2014, with the following organisations' support:

What is the Trans Manifesto?

The Trans Manifesto, developed through the LGBT Consortium, contains three key messages from trans communities. With your help, we asked candidates in the May 2015 Westminster General Election to promise to uphold these principles when considering legislation if they are elected.

The three principles are:

  • Regard trans individuals as equal citizens with equal rights,
  • Empower trans individuals to be authorities on all aspects of their own lives, and
  • Encourage diverse, representative, realistic and positive portrayals of trans individuals.

Thanks for your help!

This website allows you to see which candidates indicated support for the Trans Manifesto and which declined it.
