At the London Pride event on 5th July 2008 official stewards who were running the toilets at Trafalgar Square announced that transgender or transsexual women had to use the disabled toilets and were not allowed to use the regular women\'s toilets. A policeman, who was a LGBT liaison officer, claimed that trans women had to be able to show a Gender Recognition Certificate if they wanted to use the women\'s toilets.
We, the undersigned consider that discrimination against trans people is unacceptable. That discrimination of this sort should occur at a GLBT Pride event is even more abhorrent. We call upon the organisers of London\'s GLBT Pride events to ensure that such discrimination is never allowed to occur again.
