TRANSport: Exploring Trans Experiences of Transport

Event details

This event has already taken place.

Hosted by Department for Transport’s LGBT+ and Allies Network and Breathe, KPMG’s LGBT+ network, in honour of Trans Day of Remembrance

This interactive session will focus on the current challenges trans people face when using transport as well as addressing how individuals and organisations within the sector can make positive changes to be more trans-inclusive. The session will highlight why this is a significant issue for the transport sector and where we are currently at, including case studies from transport operators, who have been trying to address this. We will then introduce key speakers who will share their varied experiences before opening the floor to questions.

Objectives of the event:

  • Give insights into the lived experiences of trans individuals when using transport services;
  • Understand the importance of improving transport safety for the trans community;
  • Explore ways that transport organisations can act to be more trans inclusive through learning from their passengers and other sectors.

All are welcome to this event, regardless of background or sexual orientation.
