Pledge to support non binary people

I have pledged support to strengthen the rights of non-binary people. And also pledged to support the TransManifesto. The Green Party also have two trans candidates.

Regards Adrian Windisch
P.S. Please make sure that you register to vote (whoever you decide to vote for). A lot of people who think they are registered aren't. It takes 5 minutes and you can do it online here:
P.P.S. If you've been convinced by what I had to say please pledge to vote Green here (it doesn't cost you anything):

Dear Mr Windisch,

I am writing to you as a candidate in my area to ask you to pledge your support to strengthening the rights of non-binary people. Non-binary is an umbrella term for people who don't identify entirely as only male or only female, including non-gendered people. Despite roughly 1 in every 250 people being non-binary, there is very little protection for them. That's over quarter of a million people in the UK being treated unfairly by the law.

UK Trans Info and 8 other groups are asking all candidates in this year's general election to make the following pledge:

I pledge

  • to support expanding the definitions in Equality Act 2010 to ensure all non-binary people are protected.
  • to support reviewing the Gender Recognition Act, with a view to bringing the UK in line with the statement on Identity Recognition issued by the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) in January 2015.
  • to support the introduction of non gender-specific X passports, and removing the requirement for a doctors letter when changing the gender marker on a passport.

These changes should be made in full consultation with trans and non-binary people, as well as others who may be impacted by these changes such as intersex people.

Please make your pledge either by sending a tweet to @UKTransInfo or by visiting the campaign website at

Yours sincerely,
