Why This Man Wouldn’t Sell Rainbow Baked Goods To Some Indiana University Queers

The gays at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis just wanted some rainbow-colored cupcakes to celebrate October’s National Coming Out Day, so a student went to local bakery Just Cookies to place an order, and was told his money was no good there: the bakery didn’t cater to gays.

Owner David Stockton says he explained to the students that “we’re a family-run business, we have two young, impressionable daughters and we thought maybe it was best not to do that.” That contradicts the story his wife Lilly tried passing off to reporters — that they don’t make cupcakes, and didn’t have enough dough for such a large order of rainbow cookies, either.
