The Irish Girl Guides is to start allowing transgender children into their ranks

TRANSGENDER CHILDREN WHO are male on their birth cert but who self-identify as female will be allowed to join the Irish Girl Guides.

The 106-year-old organisation has confirmed that they agreed over the weekend to amend their rules after a transgender member contacted them last year.

The Irish Girl Guides says it will give effect to the decision by amending its equality policy guidelines to include the fact that “anyone who lives their lives as female is welcome to join.”

The Irish Girl Guides accepts children from the age of five and members are part of the Ladybirds at age 5-7 years, the Brownies at age 7-10 years and the Guides at age 10-14 years. After that they can remain in the Senior Branch at age 14-30 years.
