LIBERAL YOUTH MEMBER CALLS OUT BARACK OBAMA ON NON-BINARY RIGHTS
Watford Liberal Youth member, Maria Munir revealed they were a non-binary person as they urged the President to take gender neutral people seriously.
In a question and answer session held today in London, with US President Barack Obama, Maria Munir called on David Cameron and Barack Obama to lead the way in taking non-binary identification more seriously.
Charlie Kingsbury, Co-Chair of Liberal Youth commented “Liberal Youth is immensely proud of Maria, what they did today is a very brave thing to do and one that must have been very difficult for Maria”.
"Maria made a very important point when they spoke to the President. The lack of attention given to raising the profile of non-binary people is something that needs to be addressed urgently. Maria has already done some fantastic work, which they alluded to earlier today in their question to the President.”
“Mr Cameron needs to work with the relevant organisations to support the work that is already being done. I hope both Mr Cameron and the President take on board the comments made by Maria today and work towards achieving greater recognition and understanding of non-binary people” added Charlie.
