Championing Transgender Awareness

Published: November 14, 2018

Individuals and organisations around the country, including UHB, have been participating in Transgender Awareness Week (November 12 – 18) to help raise the visibility of transgender and gender non-conforming people, and address the issues the community faces.

Transgender Awareness Week is a time for transgender people and their allies to take action and bring attention to the community by promoting understanding and advancing advocacy around the issues of prejudice, discrimination, and violence that transgender people face.

As a Stonewall Diversity Champion, UHB has been showing its support to trans patients and staff – and the wider community of trans people in Birmingham and Solihull. You can view a gallery of staff from across UHB showing their support, below.
