'I hope Orange Order can accept transgender women'

Adrianne is a transgender woman living in Belfast.

When she began to transition she left the Orange Order, but now she hopes she can rejoin its women's lodges.

"I don't know if it would ever really be possible [for a transgender woman to join]," she says. "Maybe in future I think it would be possible, but maybe that's something for another generation."

A spokesperson for the Orange Order has said that "any application for membership of the Orange Institution is treated on its own individual merits."
