Home > Our Work
Our work all aims to make Scotland a better place for trans people. We strive for a world in which a person’s gender identity, gender expression or trans status or history doesn’t cause them to face discrimination or injustice.
Since 2004 the Gender Recognition Act (GRA) has allowed trans men and trans women in the UK to change the sex listed on their birth certificates to reflect their lived identity. A bill to reform the GRA is currently going through the Scottish Parliament.
For the first time, the Census 2022 will ask questions about sexual orientation and trans status. The sexual orientation and trans status questions are only for people aged 16 and over, and they are voluntary, meaning that it is not an offence to skip either of these questions.
Scottish Trans is currently funded by the Scottish Government Equality Unit to achieve three project outcomes. The outcomes relate to trans equality policy work, trans community engagement, and trans visibility.
Lots of our work involves trying to make sure that legislation proposed in the Scottish Parliament improves the lives of trans people as much as possible.
We undertake and contribute to a wide variety of research into the lives and experiences of trans people in Scotland. This research shapes our work, raises awareness of the issues affecting trans people and is used to inform policy makers.
We hold Scottish Trans conferences, roundtables and other forum meetings to enable trans people to come together to help shape trans equality work in Scotland.
We are looking for volunteers to help improve trans equality in Scotland.
