[UK] Trans councillor leaves roles after 'threats to life'

Scotland's only openly-trans councillor has said they are stepping back from frontline politics.
In a statement on social media, Dundee councillor Gregor Murray said mental wellbeing, personal issues and online abuse were behind the decision.
The SNP councillor also said they had received threats to their life.
They will remain a councillor but will no longer be convener of the children and families services committee or an equal opportunities spokesperson.

"But who is that on the other side of you?"
