Kestral Gaian (she/her) shows
I’m Kestral, a transgender activist, producer, and writer from the United Kingdom with an obsession for baking bread on the side. I spend most of my time working on building a better world through education, technology, and the arts, but occasionally find time to sit down in front of a microphone to attempt to be entertaining. It’s possible that you’ve read a book I’ve written, or listened to some music that I’ve either composed or performed – but I’ve led a pretty varied life that’s led to my having done counselling and psychotherapy, social care, and physical and mental healthcare.
Once upon a time I studied computer science, media, and marketing, and have also been on stage and screen with a small number of acting credits to my name. I am a proud trans woman who is not ashamed to speak about my gender identity or life with autism. You can contact me if you need help coding, producing audio or video content, growing your company’s LGBTQ+ policies or communities, or if you want to talk about sourdough. I’ve got a really good starter for you.
You can find out more about me on my website: www.kesgai.com
