Statement regarding recent Facebook comments

Glastonbury and Street Green Party wish to distance themselves from and strongly condemn recent comments posted on Facebook about the ‘Jail Attacks’ story written by April Roach in The Sun on 12th April 2020, and would like to confirm that the Green Party recognises that there are many gender identities that are within, and outside of, the traditional gender binary of man and woman.

The Green Party recognises that trans men are men, trans women are women, and that non-binary identities exist and are valid.

The Green Party respects transgender and non-binary people’s identities as real.

The Green Party shall include, and push for further acceptance of, transgender and non-binary people within all areas of society.
