Out There

There is an established LGBTQ+ community in the agricultural sector, and just like their straight colleagues, queer farmers tend to put their businesses first. But, admitting you are different from norms can be hard, and in the countryside it can be even harder, as bonds with family, friends, neighbours, and colleagues are often very close. All farmers have very high self-discipline, and combined with an overriding sense of responsibility for their livestock and land, leaves little room for anything else. Finding a life partner can pose a challenge to those in agriculture, and even more so for queer farmers. In Out There queer farmers openly and proudly show themselves in their work environments.
