Trans+ PRIDE – 26th June 2021

ANIMAGI Blog

This year, we coordinated with other fetish groups (@TeamPuppyUK, @MrLeatherUK, @LeathermenScot, @LeathermenCymru @Fetishdaddygear) to walk with our trans siblings in London and support trans members of our community. A huge thank you to our chairperson and Mr Leather UK Jon Stockton for helping coordinate and Snap for taking photos.

We as a community felt it was imperative to stand by side as allies and as trans+ fetishists to raise our voices against the government reversing decisions on trans+ rights: with not applying the gender recognition act; implementation of the policing bill, which could increase the danger to trans+ sex workers and not banning forced intersex surgeries and other pseudoscientific conversion therapies. With this, we made some statements on our social media and at PRIDE, all of which can be seen below.

We were so honoured to be a part of that day, that movement. We realised as an organisation that there is a lot more we can do to support trans+ rights in our community and wider, with our code of conduct and continuing to raise our voice about trans+ issues and the voices of those trans+ people. As a community, we were shocked by the gratitude we received.
