In September 2018, when the UK government was consulting on whether to reform the Gender Recognition Act to gender self-ID I started to tweet about the subject. I was working at the European office of a US headquartered organisation; the Center for Global Development (CGD). I was subject to an investigation. and I lost my job. I brought a claim for belief discrimination, harassment and victimisation.
There is a pretty good Wikipedia page on the case.

I appealed this and, In June 2021 the original judgment was overturned by the Employment Appeal Tribunal.

CGD decided not to appeal further against the EAT’s judgment.
March 2022 - Documents from the Employment Tribunal - full merits hearing.
The next stage was the full merits hearing, where the tribunal was asked to judge whether I had been discriminated against. If found that I had faced direct discrimination.

The Tribunal found in particular that the mere fact that offence may be taken to a particular statement was not sufficient to render it incapable of legal protection. This included describing opposing views as “stupid, dangerous or unfair” and the statement that allowing male-bodied individuals access to women-only spaces gave rise to “an increase in risks, threats and discomfort” to women.
