Trans Pride road crossing in North London is a “clear statement” of trans rights and LGBT+ unity. #PinkInOurLives

In the beginning of november the mayor of Camden Sabrina Francis was joined by local councillors and community leaders to open what was described as the “first trans crossing” in the borough of Camden.

Danny Beales, Camden councillor and cabinet member for investing in communities and culture, tweeted: “Today, we opened the first trans flag crossing in Camden. Wonderful to make a clear statement that everyone is welcome in Camden! An honour to be involved in making this happen”. #LGBWithTheT #TransRightsAreHumanRights.

The road crossing is on the corner of Tavistock Place and Marchmont Street, just by the Gay’s The Word, the oldest queer bookshop in Britain and a cornerstone of LGBT+ history.

It featured prominently in the award-winning film “Pride” as the lodestar of the Lesbians and Gays Support The Miners activist movement in the 1980s.

Forum+, an independent charity working to improve the lives of LGBT+ people in Camden, Islington and the neighbouring boroughs, said it was “proud to have participated” in the opening.

Josh Cavallo

Among the people who want to stress the solidarity between the LGB and trans communities was Josh Cavallo, currently the only active gay male top-tier professional football player in the world. Cavallo was praised by the LGB Alliance, a pressure group that has sought to drive a wedge between the LGB and trans communities, for his “courage” in coming out.

But Cavallo, 21, who plays for Adelaide United in Australia, simply responded with the hashtag “LGB with the T”, showing his emphatic support for his trans siblings.
