Jake Graf is a London based actor, writer and director whose first nine award winning films have screened at over 100 festivals worldwide.
His first feature film ‘Lavender’ is in development with BAFTA nominated MisFits Entertainment (‘McQueen’), and he is currently working on two television drama pilots. Jake uses the medium of films to elicit positive change, giving representation to rarely seen characters and stories and promoting acceptance and understanding. All are used as educational tools in universities, schools, prisons and media events internationally.
Recent roles include ITV’s Butterfly, DBO’s ‘Different For Girls’ and opposite Keira Knightley in feature film ‘Colette’.
He is a patron for Mermaids, akt and Ditch The Label and a judge for the European Diversity Awards, The Rainbow Honours, The Iris Prize Film Festival and The National Diversity Awards.
Inspiring, compelling and engaging speakers, Jake and his partner Hannah share passionate talks on gender, equality, and diversity.
They have presented keynote speeches, fireside chats and Q&As both in person and virtually and are best known for their documentary ‘Our Baby: A Modern Miracle’ which was on Channel 4 following their journey on starting a family through surrogacy.
Whether you’d like to book them together or individually, they share their personal accounts and unique perspective demonstrating the importance of supporting trans and LGBTQ colleagues within the workplace and beyond.
Jake’s background in film, acting and writing means he is equally assured when speaking on all manner of topics including the importance of positive representation, the media, and LGBTQ relationships, travel and inclusion.
