Whittle received an OBE in 2005 for his work on gender issues. Whittle says of his work with the community: "People ask whether I wish I hadn't been trans. My answer is No, I have been able to be at the forefront of a new political movement that is really challenging the issues of body fascism. if we can win the one about trans bodies, then we can win in all the other battle grounds surrounding the body whether to do with people being fat or thin, abled or disabled, black or brown, male or female."
