Our mission at TransLucent is to advocate for and promote the UK’s Transgender, Non-Binary and Gender Diverse community in order to advance visibility, acceptance, legal recognition and healthcare.
We do this by:
Our current active work includes :
Campaigning for a simpler and more accessible legal recognition system in the England & Wales via reform of the existing Gender Recognition Act towards a self declaration system that depathologises and destigmatises Transgender people, and includes both Non-Binary and Intersex people, and supporting our Scottish counterparts in the same activity.
Inclusion of Trans & Non-Binary people in the proposed Conversion Therapy Ban
Inclusion of Trans & Non-Binary people in Sport, including the rollback of recent blanket bans on trans inclusion
Monitoring the activities of multiple 'independent' UK public bodies, which have increasing become oppositional and damaging to our community. This includes the Equality & Human Rights Commission among several others.
Monitoring the activities of and working with the NHS to improve both access to, and provision of trans healthcare in the UK.
Investigating and monitoring trans hostile misinformation campaigns
Investigating & monitoring the links between trans hostile groups and individuals, and how they intersect with the far right and religious extremist groups
