"The Gay Chef" Cookbook Author Crowned Mr. Gay Pride Australia

Jordan Bruno has been named Mr. Gay Pride Australia for his work supporting the LGBTQ community.

The contestants were selected by an online poll and an onstage appearance at Midsumma Festival’s Carnival on the weekend.

Bruno, who became well-known after appearing on the reality television show My Kitchen Rules, is now a strong advocate for the LGBTQ community, StarObserver.com.au reports.

In 2016 he launched a cookbook, The Gay Chef, encouraging young people to cook and sharing stories of mental health issues, as well as information on how to help loved ones who may be struggling.

Downloading the free e-book gave readers the option to donate to youth LGBTQ charity Minus18 or mental health charity Headspace.

Jordan said he was overwhelmed with the victory, according to StarObserver.com.au.
