43: A Transgender Journey with Matt Ellison

Spending 4 decades of life hiding his true nature, Matt Ellison, transitioned from female to male just 4 years ago and is on a mission to educate people on what its like to live in the wrong body. 

We talk, learning to love yourself, the mental and physical journey, the loneliness of not being able to share your secrets and the fear of losing friends and work colleagues through finally becoming who you truly are.  These lessons apply to all of us and will give you greater empathy and insight into this particular journey, one that is still fraught with stigma and isolation.  Matt is an inspirational speaker and advocate for this cause, you can connect with him at www.mattellison.co.uk
