Beverly Goldberg started this petition to UK Parliament and

Last year, children’s charity Childline received around 6000 calls from minors relating to gender and sexual identity struggles, many of them expressing problems with suicidal thoughts and depression. 

This Pride Month, Childline appointed trans model and activist Munroe Bergdorf as their first LGBT+ ambassador, however after a transphobic hate campaign was waged against her, falsely accusing her of being a porn model, Childline gave into pressure from powerful LGBT+ phobic voices and dropped her as an ambassador without even providing her with an explanation. 

The actions of Childline are repulsive, and are not only the worst expression of transphobia but are also a lack of basic human respect. They are particularly traumatising for the 6000 children who report psychological struggles due to gender and sexuality issues who used to trust in them.

That is why we demand that all donors to the charity and the affiliated NSPCC stop their donations to demonstrate that LGBT+ kids matter and that Childline’s behaviour is simply unacceptable. We also demand that the UK government stops funding this openly LGBT+ phobic charity and instead focuses its resources on other children’s charities that are inclusive to everyone.
