Six leading publications aimed at lesbian and bisexual women have issued a joint statement in support of trans people. Representatives of DIVA, Curve, Autostraddle, LOTL, Tagg and Lez Spread The Word signed the statement. They state, unequivocally, ‘That trans women are women and that trans people belong in our community. ‘We do not think supporting trans women erases our lesbian identities; rather we are enriched by trans friends and lovers, parents, children, colleagues and siblings.’ It said it was issuing the statement in the wake of anti-trans reporting across much of the media. There have also been a number of lesbians who have spoken out against trans rights.
