This is another Big Lottery Fund grant of almost £500,000 which needs urgent review. This time the money has gone to Stonewall for its “transgender leadership programme” which focuses on "leadership, media and influencing" 1/ thetimes.co.uk/article/lotter…
Stonewall's Trans Advisory group includes Helen Belcher of Trans Media Watch which works to control the language of the press, and Sarah Brown, the Cambridge Councillor who quietly took away EA sex-based exemptions for women's facilities in Cambridge 2/ stonewall.org.uk/trans-advisory…
It also includes Alex Drummond who seeks to 'expand the bandwidth' of what it means to be a woman and Aimee Challenor who is currently under investigation by the Green Party for employing father David, a now convicted child rapist, as election agent 3/ leftfootforward.org/2018/12/report…
Morgan Page ran a workshop for Planned Parenthood in Toronto called "Overcoming the Cotton Ceiling: Breaking Down Sexual Barriers for Queer Trans Women", the 'barriers' in question being lesbians' sexual boundaries. Participants will "strategize ways to overcome them" 4/
Coercion of lesbians to accept sexual partners with penises is supported by Stonewall's re-definition of same-sex orientation as "same gender" orientation. All so-called "LGBT" organisations have done the same, erasing homosexuality and putting lesbians in particular at risk 5/
The LGBT Consortium stands with Mermaids and commends them "on the work they do to help young trans people understand their true selves" - in other words, to influence children according to their own belief in innate M/F souls 6/ lgbtconsortium.org.uk/news/we-stand-…
Funding has dropped for 'LGB' charities since same-sex marriage was achieved so LGBT groups need a new income stream and "LGBT" has become a cover for political trans activism. These groups go into schools to teach 'born in the wrong body' ideology to children 7/
LGBT groups such as Stonewall, the Proud Trust, Allsorts and Educate & Celebrate, and trans groups such as Mermaids, Gendered Intelligence & GIRES work to change schools policies to establish mixed-sex toilets, changing-rooms and overnight accommodation on school trips 8/
These groups also advise facilitating children's social transition in school behind parents' backs. If you are funding groups who work with children and young people and who seek to influence school policies, safeguarding is the key most urgent consideration 9/
To flag up these issues is not 'anti trans', nor "a sustained attack against our LGBT communities within elements of the mainstream media" as opined by the LGBT Consortium. Any group or charity working with children must expect the strongest scrutiny End/ lgbtconsortium.org.uk/news/standing-…
