Why We Started It
Uk Trans Awards is an annual event started to celebrate, appreciate, support, love, and praise the incredible work done by transgender, nonbinary, allies, and gender nonconforming heroes in the United Kingdom and internationally.
Empowering our local and International warriors by celebrating their achievements is very important in our battle for acceptance, visibility and inclusion.
We still have huge misconceptions and hostility against transgender people all around the world which stems from fear and lack of education on what it means to be transgender and nonbinary.
Fierce trans advocates have fought and continue to fight for legal, and social recognition of transgender people all around the world. We are unapologetically and legitimately taking up spaces which were in the past denied us due to oppression and discrimination.
