Another Baker Refuses to Sell Wedding Cake to Gay Couple

In Hood River, Oregon


Even the most romantic dreamer couldn't imagine a more fairy tale setting to get married.

A wedding beneath towering Mount Hood, overlooking the swift blue water of the Columbia River in the Gorge, truly felt like a fairy tale for Erin Hanson and Katie Pugh.

But when the couple went to find a baker for their wedding cake, they were turned away because they are lesbians.

It's a familiar story. In February, Sweet Cakes, a bakery in Gresham, turned away a gay couple. That became national news.
