Boris Johnson allegedly made a joke at the expense of the transgender community hours before the first-ever UK MP came out as trans.

During a dinner for Conservative MPs on 29 March, the Prime Minister is believed to have mocked Sir Keir Starmer for refusing to get involved in a ‘debate’ being pushed by social commentators over whether or not a woman can have a penis. “Good evening ladies and gentleman – or as Keir Starmer would put it, people who are assigned female or male at birth,” Johnson reportedly told fellow politicians during his opening speech, according to Politico.

The comment came just hours before Jamie Wallis, who was at the dinner in question, came out as trans, making him the first UK MP to do so.
