Hundreds of trans activists gathered outside Downing Street this week to protest against comments Rishi Sunak made at the Tory party conference. Activists from across the UK joined together outside the gates of Number 10 to chant messages of pro-trans solidarity in response to the government’s growing animosity towards the transgender community. The prime minister received widespread criticism for the party confererce speech he made on 4 October, in which he claimed misgendering trans people is “common sense.” In the speech, Sunak claimed the British public are being “bullied” into believing “people can be any sex they want to be.”
