I wanted to thank everyone for the huge outpouring of support I have received following my previous statement.
This is all very new to me. It’s taken a long time for me to come to terms with my gender dysphoria. It is a deeply personal matter and I had hoped to continue to keep this private until after I had finished my term as the Member of Parliament for Bridgend.
I am overwhelmed by the kindness and support I have received in the last few hours. I am proud to be completely open and honest about the struggles I have had, and continue to have, with my identity. However, I remain the same person I was yesterday. For the time being, I will continue to present as I always have and will use he/him/his pronouns.
As always, my priority remains serving the constituents of Bridgend. If anyone has any further questions, please contact me at Jamie.Wallis.MP@parliament.uk.
