Out baker, Dan Beasley-Haring says the most disheartening thing about his bake-off experience is the casual homophobia that’s been levelled against him.

Dan Beasley-Haring, who is currently starring in Channel 4’s Great British Bake Off has been attracting criticism – not because of his baking, no because of his sexuality and the fact he’s a gay dad.

Pointing out some of the homophobia that’s been targetted against the 36-year-old  star, Dan wrote, “The insidious, casual homophobia that has been directed towards me has been the most disheartening part of this experience. I’m blessed that I don’t encounter these attitudes very often in my daily life, but it’s clear that as a community we have so much more work to do”.
