That this House recognises that efforts by the press to identify a trans man and his child at the heart of a recent storygo well beyond any potential public interest; condemns the press's chosen method of a hotline for identifying the person in question; further condemns the press for placing the child and family involved at such high risk of abuse and severe disruption to their lives; is concerned about other trans people and their families who have no connection to this case and yet are facing similar severe risks, such consequences being clearly identified in Trans Media Watch's evidence of8 February 2012 to the Leveson Inquiry; calls on The Sun newspaper to immediately desist from urging readers to try to identify this trans man and his child, as it is not in the public interest; and further calls on the editor of The Sun to apologise for the fear and distress the newspaper's hotline campaign has caused amongst many trans people and their families.
