Jen Yockney is a bisexual activist and zinester in the UK.

She's notched up more than 100 issues of her main inky publication, Bi Community News (BCN), which alongside other work has led to several awards including the 2002 Cake Award for contribution to the bisexual community, and a 2005 Home Office 'Year Of The Volunteer' award for Community Impact.

In 2011 she was shortlisted for the Homo Hero awards in the "Community Champion" category for her work on BCN, running bi events and advocacy / support organisations, and wider LGBT activism. After being shortlisted in the Homo Heroes repeatedly she took the award for Volunteer in the 2016 Homo Heroes.

This was followed later in 2016 with being given the MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours List for 'services to the Bisexual Community' including her BCN work.
