Sitting around the table at the Department of Education yesterday was a fantastic feeling. To be sitting across from Minister Kevin Humphreys and so many important people from the department cemented to us just how seriously they are taking this issue.

It was a hugely positive meeting for what is an absolutely massive and growing concern for us.

As the health and education manager with Transgender Equality Network Ireland, I have worked in this area for six years.
