Trans people’s human rights are currently under attack from anti-gender movements. While conservative anti-gender movements have received substantive attention, radical movements have not. Radical anti-gender movements against trans people include, for example, so-called “feminist” and/or LGB individuals, organizations and networks. Currently, the UK has some of the most active radical anti-gender organizing against trans people. GATE is addressing the threat posed by those movements by producing and making available critical knowledge on their approaches, methodologies, actions and consequences.


The main goal of this consultancy is to increase international awareness on current challenges posed by radical anti-gender movements to trans people’s human rights in the United Kingdom. Its objectives include:

  • Mapping radical anti-gender movements in the UK.
  • Identifying key radical anti-gender approaches to trans issues in the UK.
  • Analyzing the real and potential impact of radical anti-gender organizing on trans people’s human rights in the UK.
  • Identifying key entry points for international solidarity.
