Denial of Service Incidents

This page includes incidents where GLBT people were denied a service, such as a taxi ride or lodging at a hotel.

A good number of them seem to be where bakeries wouldn't make wedding cakes. All of these self-proclaimed "Christian" bakery owners state the exact same thing: "I will be happy to make a cake for your birthday or any other event, but it would irrepairably harm my relationship with God to make you a wedding cake." This would be fine, we suppose, if everyone lived in Stepford.

We don't understand why a wedding cake for two men or two women is any different than a cake for a man and a woman. The only difference we can see is the second plastic piece at the top of the cake!

To us, it's very simple. If you want to pick and choose who your customers are, then why are you even in business?
