Following her speech Emily Brothers said:
“It was a great experience to speak in the Chamber of the Cambridge Union, as it is an historic and impressive venue.
“I was delighted to engage with some of the brightest young talent in this country during the Q & A session which followed my speech.
“I was pleased to use the opportunity to talk about effective press regulation, drawing on my experience ‘coming out’ a few months ago as a woman with a transsexual history and as a gay woman.
“It was really encouraging to hear so many young people talking passionately about mainstream politics as well as embracing LGBT issues. I was particularly struck by the younger generation being focused on non-gender binary issues, with quite a few of them neither identifying as male nor female.
“This is the new frontier for equality that I think will seriously gain traction in coming years. I look forward to observing progress, whilst hopefully helping in some small way to bring about a greater understanding and acceptance for this group.”
