Stonewall and Julie Bindal Upset Trans Community

I am late with this one, I know.

I met Ruth whilst coming back from Bicester Village, where I was interviewing men about shopping. Ruth is part of the Trans Community,  and was on her way to a demonstration march in London against Stonewalls decision to nominate Julie Bindal for an award.

I certainly learned a lot interviewing Ruth, when it comes to issues and definitions of gender and sexuality,  it is a complicated affair it seems.

I really must find out how the march went and if Julie Bindal, did indeed win.

  1. You’re not that late. I only just blogged about it in the past day or so. I think there were about 150 of us at the demo in total.
    Ruth’s blogged about it:

    She didn’t win, btw. Although she did write an article within the following two days saying that (despite being a journalist) she just wanted to be left alone…
