“There are lots of ways we can make life better for trans people. We can be better listeners, we can be more inclusive at events and in our workplaces, and we can call out transphobia when we witness it.

“As we stand here today, on the Southbank - and on our periods - it's important to remember that it's not about our bodies, it's about our minds being in sync” - Adam & Apple
