Freshfruit Contributor

I’m the CEO of an emerging LGBTQ+ media company called Freshfruit backed by the former publisher and CRO of Rolling Stone. We are expecting to launch our website in early October.

A Freshfruit, a new name I've coined, is an LGBTQ+ person (and ally) who is bold, unbothered and unbound and who may not constrain themselves to expectations of gender identity and expression. Our mission is to bring better LGBTQ+ representation and journalism to queer media; to reorient society to the contributions of the LGBTQ+ as pioneers, change makers, and cultural innovators; and to inspire queer youth.

I’m seeking submissions for from talented writers with sharp minds, who write compelling stories and takes, and whose values align with those of Freshfruit. Articles are non-paid at this time. Stories can be 500 words to 4,000 words covering arts & culture, fitness, gossip, health & wellness, music & entertainment, sports, news, style & fashion, and travel. Stories must relate to LGBTQ matters or be inclusive stories that would appeal to a primarily LGBTQ+ audience. I’m interested in the best stories by the best student writers.

For more information about Freshfruit, please check out our company website: https://freshfruitinc.com/.
