Hi, my name is Cerian Jenkins
PLEASE NOTE: Due to a (now beaten!) cancer diagnosis I haven’t been updating this site very much. However, I was blogging and oversharing at www.TheOtherCWord.co.uk so please check that out.
I’m a community organiser, campaigns specialist, and passionate intersectional activist. I thrive on creating informative, engaging, and accessible content that inspires genuine enthusiasm for social change.
Founder of the Gender Equality Network (_GEN). Stonewall School Role Model. Campaigns manager of #ISeeTara, #NotACompliment, and #SelfCareAware. Campaign Bootcamp graduate. Founder of the #RechargeAndResist project. Member of the B&NES Independent Equality
Advisory Group, and the Challenging Homphobia, Biphobia, and Transphobia Group.
I’m a columnist for DIVA Magazine, and my campaigning work has been featured in/on: The Independent, The Guardian, BBC News, New Statesman, Metro, the Telegraph, ITV, Buzzfeed, Huffington Post, the Express, the Mirror, Attitude Magazine, Gay Star News, Pink News, and more. I have also written for organisations such as The Fawcett Society and the Women’s Equality Party.
At the present time, I’m working as the Equality Officer for a university as my 9-5 (and feeling very fortunate to be in a day job which so closely aligns with my passions). On top of this, I’m also starting a new project called Recharge and Resist Festival, a two-day festival for UK activists that champions self-care and sustainable grassroots campaigning. If you fancy helping me set it up, or getting involved some other way, do reach out!

- My biggest phobia is of fish (yes, really)
- I once interviewed David Attenborough, and am slightly scared my life peaked early
- It is my strong belief that self care and kindness are revolutionary
