On behalf of Northumberland Pride’s committee and the Northumberland Pride Trans Network, I would like to thank everyone who attended our community engagement event today on Trans Day of Visibility. I feel so humbled and honoured to have been a part of this amazing event, held in Bedlington, the place where I grew up.
I’d like to offer a special thank you to Northumbria Police and Ian Lavery MP for Wansbeck, who attended to demonstrate their support of the Trans community.
But most of all, I would like to thank the numerous young Trans people and their families who attended. You are the people who made today so amazing! Some came from as far as Amble and Prudhoe!
This day was for you and I hope it has given you hope and belief that Northumberland Pride is here to support you.
Thank you all so much.
