This research seeks to assist in identifying the support that transgender employees within the hospitality industry in order to feel included in the workplace. Support for transgender people is important, as anti-trans sentiment has been growing within the UK, as evidenced from YouGov statistics which show an increase from 16% of people in 2021 stating they have a negative view of transgender people, to 25% in 2023 (Smith, 2023). In addition, transgender inclusion remains lacking in many workplaces (Fletcher and Marvell, 2022). This indicates a need to focus on how transgender people can be supported to create more inclusive atmosphere. Arguably, the best way to ensure that transgender employees are supported is to ask transgender employees what support and allyship they require in order to feel included, valued, and free to be their authentic selves in the workplace.
