Phelim MacCafferty: We are on the right path to support the city’s trans community

This Saturday I will once again join the trans community as we celebrate Trans Pride which is five years old this year. 
I wish everyone who is taking part all the best. 
Back in 2012 the Green Party Councillors established the first Trans Equality Scrutiny Panel. As chair of the panel, we made 37 recommendations to improve the lives of trans people in our city. It became clear from our scrutiny that trans people were subject to vicious harassment and institutional discrimination. We identified that not enough has been done to help our trans residents play their full part in society.
