Statement on the Press Coverage of Naomi Hersi

Over the coming weeks you may see news about the trial of Jesse McDonald who is accused of killing Naomi Hersi, a trans woman from North London.

We understand that media reporting of the trial may be unsettling for trans communities, especially for people whose own experiences touch on issues discussed in the media coverage.

We are here if you have been affected by issues around the trial. You can access confidential support from Galop by phone on 0207 704 2040 or by email: referrals@galop.org.uk or tell us online at www.galop.org.uk/online-report-form.
