Throughout the year, the Real Bread Campaign works  to celebrate the wide range of wonderful people behind the rise of Real Bread. As June is Pride Month, we’d love to throw this spotlight on a few people who identify as  LGBTQ+. 

Gay bakers and beyond

Do you fancy writing an article about yourself, or someone else involved in the rise of Real Bread? We publish pieces by and about grain growers, millers, bakers, business owners, teachers, researchers and more.

Whether or not the subject of your article includes discussion of sexual orientation or gender identity is up to you – your piece doesn’t necessarily have to be ‘about’ being LGBTQ+.

We’re also open to interviews / profile pieces of LGBTQ+ Real Bread folk by heterosexual people.

How to get involved

Have a read of your words in print and, if you’re interested, drop Campaign co-ordinator Chris Young an email with a brief outline of what you want to write about.

Why are we doing this?

The Real Bread Campaign is as much about people as it is about food. It’s about people who grow and mill grain, people who lovingly craft it into Real Bread, and those for whom this is all for – the people who enjoy eating it. 

Real Bread is made and enjoyed by people of every background, culture and identity around the globe, and we’re working to better reflect this almost boundless diversity.

Real Bread: everyone is welcome.
