Film-maker, actor and author Jake, is a trans man whose work has had a huge impact on raising awareness about trans issues. His acclaimed film ‘Brace’, which has achieved great success on the film festival circuit globally, is also used in an educational capacity in hospitals. Over the years he has campaigned for LGBT rights and hosted several ‘Stop Homophobia’ and anti-bullying events. He’s also one of the poster boys for Stonewall’s new transgender campaigns, and he speaks regularly at media and film events around the world. Jake also volunteers with ‘All About Trans’, taking part in media interactions with television and press organisations, challenging people’s perceptions and representations of transgenderism. Jake continues to write stories that attempt to ‘normalise’ the trans and queer experience, with a view to bridging gaps and promoting equality on the widest possible scale.
