Transgender Factsheet – Myths and Facts

Transgender, non-binary and gender non-conforming people (referred to as ‘trans’ throughout this document) are one of the most excluded groups both in society and in the workplace. It is unfortunately very common for trans people to face discrimination, isolation, and abuse both in public and at work.

We’ve developed this factsheet to answer some of the common questions that are asked about trans people, and to tackle some of those myths and misconceptions you might have come across, to help inform your cohesive inclusion activity.
