Podcast 10: Trans Community & Disability with Sarah Stephenson-Hunter
Play • 32 min

This week we welcome Sarah Stephenson-Hunter,  Staff Disability Advisor and Trans Lead at University of Oxford.  Sarah is a disabled person who also identifies as lesbian and is a trans woman.

ETUK are proud that this podcast provides a fantastic opportunity for us to hear Sarah’s deeply honest account of her life journey, becoming part of the Trans Disabled Community. A section of society that doesn’t get much representation on other platforms.


Sarah’s story is so interesting and multi layered with challenges of disability as well as  identity.  

  • Becoming blind when she identified as male
  • An injury leading to complete sight loss
  • Marrying a female to try and ‘cure’ her uncertainty about her gender identity
  • The transition to becoming female.  

Sarah and Jennie discuss this process, the feelings it incurred and the painful road to acceptance.
