Stonewall has responded to an “inaccurate” article by the Sunday Times about a grant reportedly awarded to the charity by the Big Lottery Fund. The piece claimed £500,000 was donated to the LGBT organisation for its transgender rights activism, leading to accusations that the Lottery broke its rules on political donations. It also stated transgender activist Morgan Page – who works for Stonewall – would help decide where the money is most needed. The article, who refers to Page as a “former trans stripper”, has come under fire from Stonewall for containing “inaccuracies”.
