MP Jackie Doyle Price vows to stop using Dove soap after brand celebrates Laurel Hubbard and trans athletes

THURROCK MP Jackie Doyle-Price has vowed to never buy from Dove again the beauty brand came out swinging for trans Olympic trailblazer Laurel Hubbard.

The first openly trans woman to compete in the Olympics, Laurel Hubbard dropped out of Tokyo this week (August 2) after failing to lift 125kg in the +87kg women’s weightlifting.

Her dreams of Olympic glory may have been dashed, but her journey is one of sporting history – and to trans and non-binary weightlifters, her Olympic bid was a “vindicating and monumental” moment, they told PinkNews.

But when Dove tweeted its support for Hubbard and trans athletes, Doyle-Price, who has repeatedly pledged her support for the anti-trans pressure group LGB Alliance, was anything but pleased.

“History in the making,” Dove’s Twitter account tweeted in July. “Congrats to Laurel! Here’s to more trans representation in sports.”

“There will be no more Dove for me,” Doyle-Price, the decade-long MP for Thurrock, tweeted Monday evening (2 August).
