THE WOMAN WHO SAVES LIVES & CHANGES MINDS

AYLA HOLDOM WAS OUTED AS TRANS BY THE SUN NEWSPAPER WITH A PARTICULARLY CRUDE METAPHOR, BUT RATHER THAN LET THAT DETER HER, SHE HAS USED THE PUBLICITY TO BRING GREATER AWARENESS TO TRANS ISSUES AND VISIBILITY.

AYLA HOLDOM

The RAF hero pushing trans visibility

Ayla Holdom is nervous. It’s the night before her cover shoot with Attitude and she is, in her own words, “shitting bricks”. Ayla is a nice, softly spoken girl from Somerset, but who can blame her for a little pre-shoot anxiety? She’s never graced the cover of a magazine before. “Whenever a camera shutter goes I swear I instantly turn into a gargoyle,” she says, “so I’m just hoping there’s going to be someone professional there to say ‘Stand there, hold this, do that’.” I reassure her that there will indeed be a whole team of professionals and that she is certain to look beautiful because she is — inside and out.

About Attitude

This very special edition of Attitude is our biggest ever. It marks our first annual Pride Awards, which were created to champion the unsung heroes of the LGBT community; all of our 11 recipients grace the cover, and their extraordinary stories are told inside. They will all be honoured at an event in London, hosted by Alan Cumming, on 26 June. This issue also marks Attitude’s 21st birthday, and inside we feature 21 ordinary 21 year olds from the LGBT community who speak about what matters to them as they come of age in Britain in 2015. The issue also includes interviews with Roisin Murphy, Little Mix, Mary Lambert, Aston Merrygold, Kavana, Collabro, actor Layton Williams, and director Bill Condon; as well as features on the rebranding of Switchboard, and a look back at Queen’s iconic Live Aid performance 30 years on. All this, plus our regular fashion spreads, columnists, real life features, travel and fitness.
