“Our government has brutally attacked trans rights, but this cannot detract from the Black Lives Matter movement. ALL Black lives matter, Black trans lives need to be valued. Fighting for Black lives MUST INCLUDE BLACK TRANS LIVES.” They also stressed the overwhelming effect the government’s legislation would have on the Black trans community: “It will make their lives more difficult and more dangerous, as transphobia will now have government support. Black trans women are being murdered at an alarming rate, most recently Dominique Rem’mie Fells and Riah Milton, due to the combined violence of racism and transphobia. 91% of trans people murdered in America in 2019 were Black trans women. We cannot embolden transphobia in the UK.’ London Trans Pride+
