Special Adviser
Sarah is a campaigner for LGBT equality, with a particular focus on transgender issues. A trans woman herself, she lives in Cambridge with her civil partner where she was formerly a city councillor, responsible for the community wellbeing portfolio, which included community grants and public health. Sarah has campaigned extensively on issues such as marriage rights (she first noticed the trans spousal veto in the same sex marriage bill and coined the term) and healthcare, starting the “TransDocFail” campaign. This collected thousands of stories of poor experience of healthcare by transgender people and ended up the focus of a General Medical Council investigation.
