Do You Like Cake?

Pride Cake w/ Suits

Do you like cake? Do you reeeeaalllly like cake? What do you like about it? The spongy texture of the cake itself, or do you prefer the melting sweetness of frosting?

While we’re on the subject of cake, Two Grooms On A Cake drops today!

The year is 1971, and Jack and Micheal are in love. “There are no recipes for weddings. But there are laws for marriage.” Through a legal loophole, they went on to become the first gay married couple in the US.

I did not know about this. I thought James Obergefell and John Arthur were the first, or at least retroactively after James died. Got to be honest, it’s been a while since I read that case too.

This just highlights how needed these books are. I can’t imagine what it would’ve been like if I read this book as a kid. Two men can love each other so much that one of them goes to law school for years to find a way to get married… #HusbandGoals but also, #SocietyFail.

If you’re wondering what this has to do with cake, it interspaces the gay history with a cake formula! I would never cakebait you.

If you have kids in your life, please make sure they see this! If you don’t it’s still a sweet short read for anyone wishing to learn more gay history.

I was so lucky and thankful that Hear Our Voices Tours chose me as a host!
