The Daily Mail

The Daily Mail is a British media organization that publishes a steady stream of sensationalized anti-transgender content.


The Daily Mail was founded in 1896 and is published in London. It was an immediate hit and has enjoyed high circulation for most of its run.

Because of its sensationalized and inaccurate reporting, Wikipedia declared it an unreliable source in 2017. Its current editor is Ted Verity.

They have mentored, nurtured, and published many of the UK’s most anti-transgender activists, including Helen Lewis, Julie Burchill, Peter Hitchens, Katie Hopkins, Richard Littlejohn, Suzanne Moore, and Piers Morgan.
