Get Involved


We are aiming to harness the expertise and experience that exists within the wider LGBT+ and human rights sectors organisations, to ensure Trans Equality Together becomes as effective a coalition as possible.

Membership Commitments

As a member of the coalition, we ask and expect that your organisation will commit to:

  1. Challenging transphobia and promoting positive attitudes towards trans and non-binary people.
  2. Creating a ‘safe space’ in which people can discuss issues of relevance to the lives of trans and non-binary people. Trans Equality Together will develop a template for these ‘safe space’ conversations and share this with our members in the months to come.
  3. Examining and, where necessary, updating your own organisation’s policies and procedures to ensure they are fully inclusive of trans and non-binary people.
  4. Publicly acknowledging your membership of – and support for – Trans Equality Together (e.g. on your organisation’s website and / or social media channels).
  5. Adhering to Trans Equality Together’s ground rules.

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 some ground rules. These are a work in progress and will develop as our work develops. These apply to everyone 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.
