Get Involved

We aim to harness the expertise and experience within the wider LGBTI+ and human rights sectors, to ensure Trans Equality Together becomes as effective a coalition as possible.

  8. Adhering to Trans Equality Together’s ground rules below.

Trans Equality Together’s Ground Rules

We are working to create space for a fresh, respectful and positive discussion for all people who challenge gender norms. To address polarising and divisive conduct, we have set out ground rules. These are a work-in-progress, and will develop as our work develops. These ground rules apply to every member of Trans Equality Together equally.

  • We value equality, our shared humanity and optimism.
  • We welcome those who wish to share, learn, are open-minded and honest.
  • It’s okay to ask questions (even if it feels a bit obvious).
  • It’s okay to make mistakes.
  • It’s okay to apologise.
  • It’s okay to change your mind.
  • It’s not okay to be rude, interrupt or censor.
  • It’s okay to feel nervous.
  • It’s okay that there may be contradictions and differences between people’s personal experiences.
  • We try to be brave and remember to be positive.
  • We value the opportunity to share experiences, discuss our differences and find common ground.
  • We respect that this is very important, personal and sensitive for every person who challenges gender norms.
