UnHerd vs. transgender people

UnHerd is a British website that publishes consistently anti-transgender content.


UnHerd was founded in 2017 by conservative British political activist Tim Montgomerie with funding from Paul Marshall. In 2018 anti-trans activist Sally Chatterton took over editing from Montgomerie, leading to significantly increased anti-trans coverage.

They are known for publishing “the kind of people who are generally ‘unheard’ because people edge away from them at parties.”

The only exception is balanced writing on religion and trans issues, including work by Christopher Rhodes and Alexander Faludy.
