#23 | Aoife Martin

In this episode of Sparking Change, Dil speaks to Aoife Martin about her experience of returning to work following her transition, and her concerns about the issues faced by young transgender people today, and the inextricable bond between feminism, trans rights, and bodily autonomy. Aoife made headlines last year when her employer welcomed her back following her transition with flowers and a card expressing their support.

Aoife is an outspoken activist for trans rights and has been writing a diary documenting her transition for HeadStuff since 2017.

“We’re finally moving into the 21st century, we’ve been dragged kicking and screaming, but I’m starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel”
