Behind An Ordinary Life Is The Extraordinary Bravery, Generosity And Wisdom of Aoife Martin

“A lot of trans people would be unemployed. It can be difficult. Like I said, “I’m a very privileged white, trans woman.” I have a good job. I have a roof over my head. I can put food on the table, but there are lots of trans people out there who don’t have that”

My guest

Aoife Martin

This powerful, moving and uplifting interview shines a light on the extraordinary journey and bravery shown by Aoife Martin. Her vivid description of her journey to become the first person globally in her organisation to transition exudes warmth, generosity and wisdom. It provides a blueprint for HR professionals, and those in the wider organisation, on how to support individuals who are considering transitioning. More importantly, the interview provides a stark warning that transphobia remains embedded in both society and the workplace and that vigilance is required to ensure hard-won rights are not reversed.

Since then, Aoife’s given numerous talks and interviews about being transgender in Ireland today. She’s passionate about educating people around transgender issues and believes it’s only by sharing her experience that she can make a difference and change people’s perceptions. Thankfully, few of us in life have had to endure the level of scrutiny, hostility, and questions about our life and motives as much as Aoife does. The shocking level of abuse received on Twitter alone has seen a block, some 180,000 users.
