Finding your true self and helping others do the same, with Jack Guinness, founder of The Queer Bible, writer, model and presenter
With 2022 seeing the 50th anniversary of the pride march in London, there couldn’t be a better time to celebrate the incredible trailblazer that is writer, model, presenter, and founder of The Queer Bible, Jack Guinness.
Fighting for change, acceptance and kindness within our society, Jack’s conversation offers crucial education about the LGBTQ+ community, and is one that should be heard by all.
A self-confessed ‘queer missionary’, Jack’s journey has been one full of challenges, strength and development. Growing up the son of a vicar with a very religious upbringing, Jack struggled internally with who he was taught he should be as a member of the church, and who he truly was as a queer man.
In his younger years, views towards the LGBTQ+ community were still very blurred, and Jack struggled to find a safe space where he truly belonged. Yet little did he know that it was this turmoil that would ignite a fire to help so many others as he does today.
Jack also opens up about the countless rejections and homophobia he faced in the fashion industry, and speaks to Holly about the language that we should be using in our society today when talking about members of the LGBTQ+ community, and that so many of us worry about getting wrong.
Now, as his happiest self, Jack is the founder of The Queer Bible — a groundbreaking platform which celebrates the lives and works of the global queer community. He is on a mission to learn from others, share his knowledge with the next generation and to let all LGBTQ+ people realise that they deserve to not only survive, but thrive too.
An enlightening and important conversation, celebrating Jack’s determination and courage to ensure our future is a more diverse and inclusive place for us all. As well as a testament to the power of finding your true self, and helping others to do the same. And just remember in Jack’s very own words, “In a world that tells you you’re nothing, you’re everything.”
