Britain's prime minister promised an action plan to tackle the injustices LGBT people face on Thursday, as activists said the community still suffered abuse and discrimination. Theresa May said the transgender community faced "indignities and prejudice", as she announced the LGBT Action Plan, which she said would ensure no one faced persecution for who they love. "It will set out concrete steps the government will take to improve lives for LGBT people in this country and address some of the injustices the community has faced," May wrote in a letter published in the Gay Times magazine. "Trans people still face indignities and prejudice when they deserve understanding and respect." About 41 percent of transgender people in Britain experienced a hate crime in 2017, according to the charity Stonewall, which advocates for LGBT rights.
