PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! A trans woman from Cornwall was kicked out of a pub up country with her friend after they were subject to a torrent of abuse. Miley Rose, from Pool near Redruth, and her friend Kelsey Russell believe they were asked to leave because they are both transgender women. They are now calling on the police to set up its own LGBTQ+ department to address rising levels of hate crime. Kelsey described how they had been sitting in a beer garden in Kent, where she lives, when some drunk men started shouting abuse at them. She told KentOnline: "They were shouting 'that's a man' and 'get your ***** out'. One guy told his friend to hold his pint glass and said he was going to hit my friend."

He got his foot and kicked me in the ****." The pair were then accused of starting the trouble and asked to leave by the landlord, who Kelsey says said: "'I don't have this drama in this pub. You two have come in and you two have caused the drama.

. Miley's friend, Kelsey Russell (Image: Kelsey Russell) Miley told CornwallLive that being transgender in Cornwall is "very difficult" and says more needs to be done to support the LGBTQ+ community and the way hate crimes are dealt with. "It's hard being a trans woman anywhere in the UK", she said. "The amount of abuse we get is unreal. "Being trans in Cornwall is also very difficult. We get sexualised a lot and men seem to think it's ok to touch us where they shouldn't. It isn't right and it's not fair." "People need to hear our story so it will help other trans people get extra support from the police and help demolish the amount of abuse we get for just being us."
