GID and disability

There’s a lot of fuss about the provisions in the new Equality Bill relating to “gender reassignment”.  As ever, many commentators are overlooking that the disability provisions in equality legislation offer greater protections – for instance in relation to expecting reasonable adjustments.    There’s even a document on the EHRC website from the Equal Opportunities Commission which states the Disability Discrimination Act applies to GID, and this should be carried forwards to the new Equality Bill.
