Lesbian Baker in Detroit Got Homophobic Cake Order: Why She Made It Anyway

Posted On: August 25, 2020

A customer of a well known black lesbian owned bakery in Detroit attempted to bait the owners into reverse discrimination by requesting a cake online with a homophobic message. The customer, an employee of a Ferndale-based, conservative Catholic organization — a group that broadcasts pro-life, anti-gay, anti-feminist, Islam-fearing, human-caused-climate-change-denying orthodox Catholic, was surprised when the owners not only made the cake, pursuant to their online ordering regular requirements, but attached a note responding with a message of love good wishes and inclusion for all!

7 Things to Do ASAP When Your Spouse Wants a Divorce

Posted On: August 18, 2020

This article gives some good advice.  The very first thing someone facing a divorce should do is finding or hiring a good attorney.  I would recommend that you hire a good collaborative attorney.  It is always better to go through the collaborative method which approaches divorce from a holistic perspective of helping you and your family survive the dissolution of your marriage, both financially and emotionally.  It requires full disclosure and transparency as the law requires.  You will work with a team of professionals to help you through that process.

The other good tips in this article include monitoring your credit report, taking an inventory of all your assets and liabilities, and do what is necessary, depending upon your circumstances with respect to protecting your financial future.

7 Black Queer Couples Share Their Best Relationship Advice

Posted On: August 03, 2020

Black lesbians are probably the most marginalized communities in the US.  This is a refreshing article on the positive outlook of black lesbian relationships as well as their best advice on how it works and how to make it last.  For most of us, what we learned in school about history actually reflected only white male history.  Minorities, including women (and especially the lesbian community), as well as the minority communities within the lesbian community, are extremely marginalized and were never part of mainstream education.  It's time for us all to embrace diversity.
