Trans model and activist Munroe Bergdorf has spoken with the Metro daily paper about the moral panic whipped up by certain right wing media over trans people, and with her usual incisive anaolysis, looks at how we have as a community been here before, in a manner of speaking. She says ‘I think we’re in this very precarious moment in time when it comes to trans rights and I think that it’s very reminiscent of where gay men were in the 1980s and 90s with this mass hysteria over – at the time, it was gay men, now it’s trans people. Like, what does that mean if we have equal rights? Should we be allowed in the spaces we want to be in? All these things are being debated about trans people were being debated about gay men in the 1980s and 1990s so we know exactly where it’s rooted.” On the positive side, Munroe says that there is more representation that is seeing the push back from the right, and cites “Heartstopper”’s Yasmin Finney as an example of a trans person being in the public eye and accepted in their industry. Munroe is currently co-hosting “Queerpiphany”, an MTV produced programme available on the You Tube platform.
