Trans Activist Group Under Investigation

  • The United Kingdom’s Charity Commission has announced the launch of a statutory inquiry into the trans advocacy group Mermaids after an initial investigation by the commission raised “newly identified issues about the charity’s governance and management.”
  • Mermaids, a charity that defines itself as supporting “transgender, non-binary, and gender diverse children and young people,” found itself facing intense public scrutiny after it attempted to strip gay rights charity LGB Alliance of its charitable status earlier this year.
  • A member of the Mermaids board of trustees had spoken at a pro-pedophile rights conference, and just last week it was announced that CEO Susie Green had left the charity after six years.
