Hi there!

We hope you’re having a good week so far.

In August, a UK politician found herself at the centre of an online row. Rosie Duffield, the Labour MP for Canterbury, liked a tweet from Piers Morgan that took issue with the inclusive phrase “individuals with a cervix”.

After initially standing by her actions, Rosie – who has been a vocal supporter of LGBT+ rights in the past – apologised and took a step back from social media. But how do her LGBT+ constituents feel following the row?

We spoke to members of Canterbury’s trans community about their feelings towards their MP and how she can both make amends and better support them in the future. As a MyPinkNews member, we wanted to give you an early preview:

Labour’s Rosie Duffield eventually apologised after vicious transphobic row. Now, her trans constituents must decide whether to accept the apology

Thank you for supporting LGBT+ journalism.

Speak soon,
