We work to improve gender identity and gender reassignment equality, rights and inclusion in Scotland.
We are inclusive of non-binary people.
We strive for everyone in Scotland to be safe and valued whatever their gender identity and gender reassignment status and to have full freedom in their gender expression.
There are currently three full-time Scottish Trans Alliance staff within the Equality Network:
Scottish Trans Manager
Vic Valentine (they/them)
Scottish Trans Justice Policy Officer
Becky Kaufmann (she/her)
Scottish Trans Community Development Officer
Oceana Maund (they/them)
To contact Scottish Trans Alliance part-time sessional workers and volunteers, please email Vic.
The Equality Network was founded back in 1997 as a national organisation working for LGBT rights and equality in Scotland and is a registered charity governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees. Scottish Trans Alliance has been an Equality Network project since 2007.
We strive to be inclusive and open in our work, to challenge discrimination and to consult, involve and inform the individuals and the communities for which we work.
Partnership is a key part of our approach, and much of what we do involves working in partnership with diverse LGBTI people, other trans and LGBTI organisations, and with organisations working in the wider equality and human rights field.
