Sara R Phillips is the Chair of TENI (Transgender Equality Network Ireland). Sara speaks here about the rights of trans young people and the necessity for trans voices to be at the centre of discussions about the community.

It has been three and half years since the introduction of legislation providing legal gender recognition in Ireland. In that time, approximately 420 people have sought and received their gender recognition certificate enabling them to secure a birth certificate in their preferred gender. This figure includes a small number of people aged 16 and 17 years of age who applied for their gender recognition certificate with the support of parents or guardians.

About GCN

In this travel-themed issue of GCN, we profile LGBT+ Irish people who have made new lives abroad and at the same time welcome the new members to our queer family who have travelled from around the globe to make Ireland their home. Inside you’ll find tips from travellers with ideas on where you could plan that next trip. With relationships with other countries forefront in our minds, we also take a look at Brexit, how it affects us currently and what it could mean for the future.
