"On Monday, Nemat Sadat, the first gay Afghan to come out publicly, tweeted: “It’s not hyperbole to say that the Taliban will do what Nazis did to homosexuals: weed them out and exterminate them from Afghan society. Please help.”" twitter.com/PatrickStrud/s…

'My brother died of ovarian cancer - we need to increase importance of trans health screening' Really moving article by @PatrickStrud - highlights the importance of speaking about cancer care and screening for trans people. inews.co.uk/news/long-read…

This is really good, and sad. In addition to raising awareness there’s also the issue where some trans folk have bad or even abusive healthcare experiences that make them fearful and avoidant. twitter.com/PatrickStrud/s…

5/ Sean died before they were able to reunite. “It was very quick, within days of me knowing. It was shocking. A shock on lots of different levels. Shocking because you never think you’re going to lose a sibling – you think that they’re there forever. inews.co.uk/news/long-read…
4/ In 2007, Sean phoned his brother to deliver the news. “Sean said it was ovarian cancer,” says Lord Duncan. “I remember thinking, ‘That must be very difficult to deal with because of who you are’.” inews.co.uk/news/long-read…
3/ Duncan’s decision to spark a public conversation about cancer in trans people comes as two cancer charities, Live Through This and CoppaFeel!, launch a groundbreaking campaign to increase the numbers of trans and non-binary people checking themselves and going to screenings.
2/ Duncan thought for a long time before granting this interview. “The whole community has become a football for different factions who are using it as a means to tell a story. Often the people ignored are the very people that that story is about.” inews.co.uk/news/long-read…

A quick thread on my reading of the latest Warwick University modelling. Firstly, realise that they have only assessed the scenarios they have been asked to assess by the government. Essentially ONLY looked at "what if we open up on 19 July"

This is me in March 2020, on my way to King's College Hospital. I hate sharing it. But if we're talking in relaxed terms about consigning 2,500 people *per day* to this, let's confront the reality of it. Terror, for the patient, and for their loved ones. twitter.com/i/status/13747…

"Herein lies a central tenet of western racism. When diversity is related to success it's a sign of the nation’s genius in allowing, nurturing and managing it; when it's attached to a national calamity, diversity is the reason for the failure." (From 2018) bit.ly/3ARcMYt

From now on, whenever you storm off, anywhere, for any insane reason (that makes you cringe the next day) you can now say it was all planned in order to make a much wider point, and totally get away with it. "I was doing a Joe Lycett!"
This story is horrifying, though unsurprising, and is exactly why there can be no religious exemptions allowed in the conversion therapy ban Bill. twitter.com/PatrickStrud/s…

“I’ll never forget it,” says Angela Paterson, staring straight ahead. “We were in the study. He said, ‘You know what? I can help you with your…” Her voice cuts out. The missing word is sexuality. She stops, breathes, reaches for a piece of towel... t inews.co.uk/news/long-read…

8/ An important development to yesterday’s story: Alicia Kearns, the MP leading the charge among the Conservatives to drive through the conversion therapy ban tells @theipaper that LGBT people WILL be protected from religious-based conversion therapy. inews.co.uk/news/conversio…
This is so awful and heartbreaking, and yet conversion therapy in different forms continues regularly, and legally, in the UK Until the Government bans conversion therapy, with no ifs or buts or ‘exemptions’, they continue to allow anti-LGBT torture to happen under their watch twitter.com/PatrickStrud/s…

For all survivors, everywhere. #conversiontherapy has to be banned fully. It harms people’s body, mind and spirit. Peace and love. ❤️‍🩹 thank you@PatrickStruddtwitter.com/theipaper/stat…v

7/ Buy today’s @theipaper - Angela’s story is on the front page.
"She had contacted the Evangelical Alliance in 2009 to make a complaint about Rev Donald, the pastor who abused her. When they asked for more details, she described in an email what had happened to her. The Evangelical Alliance did not respond." twitter.com/PatrickStrud/s…

Horrifying. Angela Paterson [pictured] tells her story of being raped by her pastor to add evidence to a Government consultation on banning 'conversion therapies'. A ban here in the UK is extremely overdue. It can't come soon enough. #BanConversionTherapy inews.co.uk/news/long-read…

The Evangelical Alliance asking the government for a religious exemption for the ban on conversion therapies makes me feel sick. A difficult but important read. twitter.com/PatrickStrud/s…

Please read and please amplify this incredibly brave and powerful testimony from Angela Paterson. The government *must #BanConversionTherapy in all its forms. This is abuse of LGBTQ+ people plain and simple, and it should have no place in our society. twitter.com/PatrickStrud/s…

If you can, please read Angela's story. This is the reality of Conversion Therapy, it is inseparable from violence and abuse. In bravely speaking out, Angela's testimony shines a light on the many others who suffered similarly from so-called Conversion Therapy. twitter.com/PatrickStrud/s…
