Born and bred in The Black Country, Jayne passed her driving test when she was 17 and all she wanted to do was drive. A mobile fishmonger, a market trader and a play worker all gave the opportunity to drive vans, trucks and buses – the perfect combination.
While working for the local council with children during the Clause 28 era, the question most frequently asked of her was, “are you a boy or a girl?”
Jayne is a LGBTQ family-centric, bongo-owning, practical lesbian with a granddaughter who calls her ‘My Jayne’.
What does your identity mean to you?
Being an out butch lesbian is important to me, I love who I am and being able to live my life in my way. Helping people, problem solving and working hard is what makes me happy and content with my world.
