Shortlist

Jake and Hannah are one of the few openly visible transgender couples in the UK. Meeting in 2015 they have been almost inseparable ever since. 

They got married in 2018 and are now working towards starting their own family.  Passionate speakers on gender, equality and diversity and having become something of an inspiration to the wider transgender community, they work tirelessly to represent it both in the UK and internationally, seizing every opportunity to increase acceptance and understanding.

Also they are hugely motivational in their speaking.

Both are patrons of the Mermaids charity whilst Hannah frequently works on Jake’s films and media requests which are now for them as a couple commonplace.

The pair were listed at joint number 10 on 2018’s Guardian Pride Power List. 

Hannah and Jake between them have appeared on Lorraine, Good Morning Britain, The One Show, The Victoria Derbyshire Show and many others.

Hannah is a Captain in the British Army.  She commissioned in 2010 and since that time has commanded soldiers across the world including in Germany, Canada, Kenya and Afghanistan. Hannah’s personal story of transition captured the imagination of the nation in 2015 and will continue to do so.

Outside the Army Hannah also acts as an ambassador for LGBT Sport in Wales. Her work in diversity has won her several accolades including Cosmopolitan Woman of the Year, an honorary fellowship from Cardiff University and an MBE in the 2019 New Year’s Honours List.

Jake is a writer, director and actor whose first six films have received a collective 57 awards.  Jake's first feature film and two drama pilots are currently in development with MisFits Entertainment ('Alleycats'/'McQueen').

All of his films are used as educational tools in schools, prisons and universities worldwide.

He has also just starred opposite Keira Knightley in feature film ‘Colette’ and in new ITV drama 'Butterfly'.

Jake has spoken at many events, most notably at the Houses of Parliament and as part of the first ever trans specific event at The White House.

Jake is also a patron for Ditch The Label and The Albert Kennedy Trust and a judge for the National Diversity Awards and The British LGBT Awards.
