Emma Watson Supports Transgender Rights

Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) shares a personal post on her Instagram to support transgender rights in the UK.

Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) has come forward in support of trans rights as UK activists urge people to fill out a government-led public consultation to reform the Gender Recognition Act 2004 (GRA).

The Gender Recognition Act is a ground-breaking piece of legislation that came into action in 2004, allowing people with gender dysphoria to change their legal gender, but now campaigners are seeking to alter the law.

Activists are now fighting to have the GRA changed to allow people to self-identify their gender without rigorous medical checks to prove they’re living in their truth, and Emma’s support is bringing the fight into the mainstream spotlight.

In a photo on her Instagram feed, she wears a white t-shirt with the slogan ‘Trans Rights are Human Rights’, alongside tagging multiple trans and LGBTQ+ organisations.
