Ben Summerskill gets OBE

After the fuss with Stonewall and Julie Bindel’s award nomination earlier in the year, it was disappointing to see that Ben Summerskill was awarded an OBE. In general I’m in favour of champions of diversity¬†getting an OBE but as Stonewall has never apologised for the deep offence they caused to many in the trans community the timing of Summerskill’s OBE¬†is poor as it looks as though the Government has endorsed transphobia.
