About

Transmisia in the UK has somewhat different patterns than in the US and some other parts of the world in that trans rights have been firmly established in law since the 2004 Gender Recognition Act (GRA). Transmisia advocates often focus on (a) fighting against proposed improvements to the GRA and (b) fighting to remove some of its protections.
