Let them eat cake
While the United States is debating whether or not a bakery has to provide cakes for gay couples, a bakery in Canada is doing one better.
Chris Farias, a man from Hamilton, Ontario, wanted to celebrate his engagement to partner Jared Lenover. What better way to do that than with a cake?
He called up a local bakery, Cake and Loaf Bakery, ‘and request the GAYEST cake they could make’. He shared his story about the cake on Facebook on Wednesday (13 December).
After he requested the cake, this is what the bakery said:
‘Without hesitation, and with much excitement, they said “We’ll do it!!!”
‘This is what I got. I am in tears right now I’m so happy.’
Complete with a rainbow cake, flowers, affirming messages, and a unicorn horn, it really might be the gayest cake ever.
‘Canada is loud and proud’
‘Being part of the LGBTQ+ community isn’t easy for many,’ Farias continued in his post.
‘And that’s an huge understatement. But I am proud of who I am, and how far WE have come. I am proud to be a gay Canadian who can order a cake and not get turned down because of who I love. I love this country, and I love my community.’
He ended his post imploring people to share it if they believe #LoveIsLove in order to ‘show our neighbours to the south that we support them’.
Farias seemingly referenced the United States’ current Supreme Court case, Masterpiece Cakeshop.
‘That we empathize with their struggles. That Canada is loud and proud and will make them any cake their heart desires.’
