The Scottish Transgender Alliance assists transgender people, service providers, employers and equality organisations to engage together to improve gender identity and gender reassignment equality, rights and inclusion in Scotland. We strive for everyone in Scotland to be safe and valued whatever their gender identity and gender reassignment status and to have full freedom in their gender expression.
We believe that it is in the interests of all gender diverse people in Scotland to come together in alliance with one another to work more effectively to eliminate discrimination and harassment. We consult and involve many groups and individuals with various diverse identities, including: transsexual women, transsexual men, non-binary-gender people, cross-dressing people, intersex people and others. We prioritise working in partnership with other local, national and international equality organisations and take an intersectional approach which recognises the importance of tackling multiple discrimination.
The Scottish Transgender Alliance has been funded since 2007 and currently has two full-time members of staff. We also have a number of diverse volunteers who assist us in our work. We are based within the Equality Network, which is a Scottish LGBT Equality Charity.
