A march will take place in Dublin this Saturday, the 20th of January 2018, to protest the lack of healthcare for transgender and non binary people in Ireland. Protesters can meet at Merrion Square West at 2pm and from there join the march to Leinster House on Kildare Street. A demonstration will then take place outside Leinster House which will include addresses from several speakers. 

"The protest is aiming to improve the woefully unacceptable level of transgender healthcare being provided to people in Ireland" said Noah Halpin, Vice President of IT Blanchardstown Colours LGBTQ+ Society, head organiser of the protest. "We want to move away from the medical/ diagnostic model and adopt the model of informed consent, used by most developed nations. This is in terms of Hormone Replacement Therapy and gender reassignment surgeries."

About the protest:
