Transgender Awareness Week breaks down barriers

Matt Price reports on Transgender Awareness Week 2018, a global campaign which has raised awareness and broken down barriers. The week was designed to educate people about the issue - and help those going through the process to feel more accepted.

A recent study from Stonewall has found:

  • One in eight trans employees have been physically attacked by a colleague or customer in the last year.
  • Half of trans people have hidden their identity at work for fear of discrimination.
  • A quarter of trans people have experienced homelessness.
