Previous Trans Allies videos have included Jameela Jamil, Stephen Fry, Neil Gaiman and more. This year’s first video features 70 guests making it her biggest yet, with her upcoming trans community video set to feature 21 more.

Following 2021, which marked the deadliest year on record for the global trans community and the anti-LGBTQI and anti-trans legislation that is on the rise around the world this year, both trans visibility and the visibility of our allies is essential. We must show that transphobia is never okay, trans rights are human rights and continue our fight for a safer and more equal world.
Like previous years, Sarah’s second video will be posted on Transgender Day Of Visibility (31 March). Be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss out.
