Vulnerability, empathy and the inspirational leader.
Ex-RAF, motorbike racer, newspaper editor, Premier League football and rock photographer, self harm and suicide survivor and transgender.
Sophie Cook is a media personality and activist whose wide portfolio of work includes presenting, producing, writing and photography.
She became the first transgender woman to work in football’s Premier League as club photographer for AFC Bournemouth following her transition from Steve to Sophie in the summer of 2015.
In 2016, Sophie’s amazing story was spotlighted in a number of national newspapers and broadcasts, most notably the BBC’s primetime Premier League Show.
In April 2017 she was selected by the Labour Party to contest the East Worthing and Shoreham seat, increasing the Labour vote by 114% and narrowly missing out on becoming the UK’s first transgender MP, for now.
