A leading private school in the UK has made a change to its uniform policy in order to make trans students feel more welcome.
Brighton College, which takes students from the age of eight, is removing gendered uniform roles, to accommodate for gender non-conforming and trans students.
The school will now allow any student the option to wear a skirt, blouse and bolero or trousers, a shirt, tie and blazer.
In a statement, the school said it was “reacting to a changing society which recognises that some children have gender dysphoria and do not wish to lose their emotional gender identities at school. [Private] schools are usually seen as bastions of conservatism but Brighton College feels it is time to break ranks.”
