Poet

Charles Kains Jackson was dubbed one of the "Uranian" movement in his capacity as editor of the monthly magazine Artist and Journal of Home Culture. At the end of 19th and beginning of the 20th century there was a group of British writers, connected to each other by varying degrees of acquaintance and a commn interest in (predominantly) "boy-love", that was called "Uranian".

Kains Jackson became editor of the Artist in 1888. He discretely solicited and surreptitiously printed works that had little to do with the magazine's ostensible concern. The last issue he was to edit included his "The New Chivalry" essay about the social potential of boy-love.

Kains Jackson was a member of the Order of Chaeronea, a secret society for homosexuals founded in 1897 by George Ives, which was named after the location of the battle where the Sacred Band of Thebes was finally annihilated in 338 BC. Other members included Samuel Elsworth Cottam, Montague Summers, and John Gambril Nicholson.
