WATCH: Gay couple tricks anti-LGBT Indiana pizzeria into catering their wedding celebration

Published

A gay couple tricked an anti-LGBT pizza shop into catering their same-sex wedding.

The owners of Memories Pizza sparked a nationwide backlash earlier this year when they boasted they would never serve food at a gay wedding, but Robin Trevino and his husband, Jason Delgatto, did just that.

The couple had a wedding ceremony in Illinois in 2008, before their marriage was technically legal in the state. They obtained an official license a year later in Iowa, although they were unable to celebrate with family and friends at that time.

The couple celebrated a renewal of their vows Saturday as part of a nationwide celebration of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriage in all 50 states.

Trevino is a member of the GayCo Ensemble comedy troupe, which is producing a “50 States of Gay” celebration, and he got the idea to renew their wedding vows when he realized how close he was to Memories Pizza while working in Indiana, reported the Friendly Atheist blog.

He drove to Walkerton, where he ordered two pizzas from Crystal O’Connor — who said she would deny service for a same-sex wedding reception after state lawmakers passed the anti-LGBT Religious Freedom Restoration Act in March.

Trevino and Delgatto exchanged vows in a celebration joined by their 1-year-old daughter, and the couple served Memories Pizza to their cheering friends and family.

“Memories Pizza just catered our gay wedding,” Trevino announced as friends shrieked with delight.

2020 Election

Joe Biden’s ‘Jim Crow moment’ was dreadful — but he may be Democrats’ best shot at beating Trump

Published

The Democratic Party's presidential nomination and the White House are Joe Biden's to win — unless he sabotages himself.

Last Tuesday while speaking at a fundraising speech in New York, Biden reflected on his early career in the Senate, working alongside Sen. James Eastland of Mississippi and and Sen. Herman Talmadge of Georgia, a pair of old-line segregationists:

I was in a caucus with James O. Eastland. He never called me 'boy,' he always called me 'son.' Well guess what? At least there was some civility. We got things done. We didn't agree on much of anything. We got things done. We got it finished. But today, you look at the other side and you're the enemy. Not the opposition, the enemy. We don't talk to each other anymore.

2020 Election

Who are all these white men running for president — and why?

Published

on

The country’s last presidential election was wide open, with incumbent president Barack Obama termed out of office and his vice president, Joe Biden, opting not to run as his replacement. While the vacancy looked like an opportunity for the 16 Republican men (and one woman) who ran in 2016, Democrats essentially cleared the field for Hillary Clinton, the first woman to win the party’s presidential nomination. Her only two challengers were white men; one who eventually became a star at the center of his own political movement and the other who was shortly reduced to strumming his guitar shirtless for attention.
