A woman

A woman complained to the Press Complaints Commission through Liz Willows of the Camden LGBT Forum that the newspaper had raised a breach of Clause 12 (Discrimination) in referring to her as a "gender bender" in the text and headline of an article originally published in 2008 but still hosted on its website.


The complaint was resolved when the newspaper wrote to the complainant accepting her concern about the language used and removed the article from its website.
