- Stephanie Davies-Arai, the founder and director of Transgender Trend, has received a British Empire Medal in the Queen’s Birthday Honours. On Wednesday, Davies-Arai said:
“I’m really honoured and thrilled to be recognised for my work. It is a huge honour and I’m quite knocked out by it and very grateful to everyone who nominated me.
I hope it indicates a change in opinion about the treatment of children with gender dysphoria and is a recognition of my work, which has been wrongly called transphobic or bigoted.
What I saw was a one-size-fits-all approach to dealing with these children, which risks sending them towards a medical pathway.
One of my concerns was the alternative wasn’t talked about. Everyone should be open to debate; it’s healthy. Silencing debate by calling evidence-based approaches ‘bigoted or transphobic’ is very dangerous.”
