Colorado, USA: Lakewood Baker Won’t Make Cake for Lesbian Couple, But Will for a Dog Wedding

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

ColoradoLovely. A gay wedding is off-limits for the Colorado baker because of his religious principles, but a dog wedding, hey, that’s fine. Queerty reports:

Stephanie Schmalz and her partner Jeanine were on the hunt for cupcakes to feed guests at their commitment ceremony back in January. The couple wasn’t surprised after being turned away by the notoriously homophobic owner of Masterpiece Cake Shop, but they were rightfully offended. Jack Phillips, the bakery’s owner, has been in hot water before for refusing service to a number of gay couples in the Denver area, telling one that he “would not provide cakes for pedophiles,” and another that his policy is based on “reading of the word of God.” Shortly after Phillips refused to work with the lesbian couple, Schmalz gave him a call back. This time, she requested a cake for Roscoe and Buffy, two dogs that were celebrating a small marriage ceremony with 20 other guests. Phillips gave Schmalz a quote, and asked for the wedding date.

The sanctity of marriage is harmed by gays and lesbians marrying, but dogs, somehow, manage to uphold the dignity of the institution?

OH: Lakewood to Expand Transgender Protections

Thursday, December 16th, 2010

City council stands poised to expand protections for transgender residents with the passage of three new ordinances. The final votes are expected on December 20, according to councilor Nickie Antonio and council president Kevin Butler.

The move comes just months after Antonio, who leaves for the Ohio House of Representatives next month, worked with the human resources director of Lakewood to add sexual orientation and gender identity to personnel policies across the board, protecting city employees from anti-gay and anti-trans discrimination.

“Further, the language that was incorporated into the updated policies and procedures has also been expanded and incorporated into some of the union contracts that have been negotiated this year, so those protections will now be in those contracts going forward,” Antonio said, “which I really believe speaks to the city of Lakewood’s commitment to respecting diversity in hiring and employment.”
