Jayne Ozanne is a lay member of the General Synod of the Church of England who has been campaigning for LGBT equality within the church since 2014. She has campaigned on many issues, including marriage equality and the banning of “conversion” or “reparative” therapy, and in 2017, she met with Pope Francis and discussed some of these issues with him. In the press coverage of this meeting, she was criticised by conservative members of the Church of England and was referred to by one journalist as a “Notorious Anglican Lesbian Activist”. A phrase that was clearly intended by the conservative Christian press as an insult was claimed wholeheartedly by the Anglican lesbian activists of the Anglican Communion, – including Jayne herself – and was taken up as a badge of honour.
