about Jarley (she/her)
Jarley is a 28-year-old gender fluid lifestyle blogger and LGBTQ+ campaigner based in London. Her interests include fashion, musical theatre and social history, as well as championing gender diversity, transgender visibility and mental health awareness.
Professionally, Jarley is an award-winning instructor signal operator on the world’s oldest Underground urban railway network – the London Underground – and is the first, and to date the only, openly gender fluid person to undertake that role. In August 2021 she appeared on Yesterday Channel’s Secrets of the London Underground talking about London Underground’s heritage signal cabins.
When not keeping the trains rolling Jarley can often be found inside a performing arts venue, following her love for musical theatre and fuelling a perhaps slightly unhealthy obsession for all things Les Misérables. She also loves to travel and to explore, taking an inquisitive view on the world and looking for the beauty and the uniqueness at every turn. You can follow her day to day adventures and visits on their Twitter page.
Jarley writes about her experiences with gender, offering an insight into experiences shared by thousands in a similar position across the globe. She challenges societal stereotypes and works tirelessly to educate and engage about the gender spectrum. Jarley’s work specialises in the transport sector, where she engages with numerous stakeholders to confront commonly held notions of sex and gender and seek to improve the experiences for staff and customers travelling on Britain’s transport networks. To this end, in August 2020 she set up The Progress Train, a decentralised campaign network to promote better LGBTQ+ visibility across the transport industry.
You can keep up to date with Jarley’s adventures by following her on a variety of social media – or by reading this blog! Whilst she’s primarily found on Twitter, you can also find her at the following sites:
