Attitude – Spirit of Attitude Award finalist - Allyson Hamblett

Born with cerebral palsy, Allyson was accustomed to being singled out as different. She fought hard to attend university but struggled to be fully accepted and find work. It was around this time she realised the gender she was born with didn't 'fit', and began the journey of becoming a woman. Allyson now sits on boards such as CCS Disability Action and OutlineNZ. She has petitioned Parliament to make it easier for trans, intersex and gender diverse people to update their birth certificates.
