Exclusive Interview with Lynne Paris, Writer and Director of AH Men
Q:-This must have been a traumatic experience for you. What made you tell your story publicly?
A:- I was asked to, and because I know how isolated wives of transexuals can feel I decided to go public to reach out and support other women who find themselves in my position. To give them hope and self respect back.
Q:- How do you plan to support wives?
A:- I’ve developed a Helpline network of Counsellors , Relationship Coaches and spiritual resource which will make sense of what has happened to them. It’s a time of growth and transition for wives as well to reach their full potential. It’s hard for women, if their husband wants a sex change, to understand that they can also revolutionise their lives – have their own transition, in a way.
Q :- But surely a wife can refuse to agree to her husband having a sex change unless she feels comfortable with the idea?
A:- You’d expect so, but legislation was passed in Europe making it unnecessary for a man to have the consent of his wife before he has a sex change. A man can be a long way down the treatment route without his wife even knowing. What happened to me could happen to any woman.
Q: How can women access the Helpline?
A:- Details will shortly be published on the AH Men website www.ahmen.co.uk
Q: What are your plans for AH Men?
A:- AH Men is attracting attention from many Diversity Groups, at home and abroad because it explores issues around The Equality Act and Protected Characteristics in a uniquely insightful and humorous way. We’ve received a couple of enquiries about making a film. I guess we’ll just see what comes along.
