Big episode for growing trans folks. Here is what we talk about:
– We have a new prime minister. He is terrifying.
– The NHS has issued the service spec for the new trans youth clinics replacing GIDs, they are…not ideal.
– Scotland crosses the first hurdle towards actual Gender Recognition Act reform!
– We talk to folks from Just Stop Oil and Extinction Rebellion about why they do what they do.
– We talk to the English Collective of Prostitutes about what they have been protesting lately
– And we went to the LGB Alliance conference counter protest.
