“Brave” Gay Couple Lies to Get Pizza

When will they lie to ISIS?

Months after an infamous Indiana pizzeria stated it would not cater a same-sex wedding, a trickster couple devised a plan to trump this discriminatory company policy.

Last week, Robin Trevino of GayCo Productions, a sketch comedy group, drove to Walkerton, Indiana to visit Memories Pizza, a small town family-owned business that made headlines this past spring.

Trevino traveled to Indiana as part of GayCo’s 50 States of Gay, a series celebrating the Supreme Court decision which legalized same-sex marriage across the United States by choosing a different state out of a hat each week.

Last week, Trevino picked Indiana, and drove from Illinois to purchase pizza for his legal marriage ceremony to his long-time partner, with whom he has a one-year-old daughter. Trevino then drove back with the pizzas in a cooler, serving them to guests at his wedding the next day.

“If a gay couple came in and wanted us to provide pizzas for their wedding, we would have to say no,” pizzeria employee Crystal O’Connor told ABC News earlier this year.

O’Connor’s public statement came on the heels of the controversial Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which proclaimed the state cannot create legislation that infringes on a person’s religious beliefs. 

The act jumped into the spotlight when many interpreted this as a way for businesses to legally discriminate against the non-protected LGBT community.

The pizzeria briefly closed after the April 2015 controversy, but reopened to much fanfare, including a crowdfunding donation of more than $842,000.

    This story is gay.
    A gay guy goes to a pizza joint that said they’d rather not cater a gay wedding and buys a bunch of pizzas without disclosing he’s gay and then serves them at his gay wedding the next day.
    Oh, what a burn!
    Technically they still haven’t catered a gay wedding.
    I worked in hospitality for many years and in both inside and outside catering you serve your customers guests on site.
    It is not catering if all you are doing is selling your food from a storefront.
    And I don’t know of any restaurant or hotel anywhere that is going to say, ‘Hey, wait a minute, you’re not going to take this food I’m selling you here in my place of business and go give it to a bunch of gay wedding guests, are you?’
    What a fucking nimrod.

      Yeah a real triumph, isn’t it? These SJW need to get a life. Its ridiculous.

      • No, he’s brave because he resisted the micro-aggression of the privilege and stuff…

    • Shebel

      It was a great sales day for the pizza joint and the fags look almost as stupid as there are.

      • Justin St.Denis

        I agree with you, Shebel. Memories Pizza should introduce a “gay marriage product line”, including the “Carpet Muncher Matrimonial Meal” for lesbians, and the “Sodomite Special Mariage Meal” for the gay guys. I would ensure that pricing reflected the sentiments.

      What cheap bastards serve friggin’ pizza at a wedding?

      They still support Christian business!

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        You can bet they cut it into one inch squares and served it like communion wafers prior to the first course of soup or salad.
        Bangs on wineglass with a spoon.
        Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding.
        ‘Everyone. Everyone. Pleasss.’

        • Clink9

          On the wedding night, how do they decide who’s pitchin’ and who’s catchin’?

      • I guess the joke really is on the pizzeria.

  • The Butterfly

    “…with whom he has a one-year-old daughter”

    You know, I’m a just a butterfly, but could somebody please explain to me how this works?

    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      Maybe the partner is a she pretending to be a gay he. Its a screwed up world. I mean, Bruce Jenner is now supposed to be a she but she’s into “other” shes …

    • Alain

      She would have been adopted or he had her from a previous marriage, a real one with someone of the opposite sex. Why and how he would have got custody is another question.

    The media was upset today that a homosexual couple couldn’t put their kid in a private Christian school. Everyone laughed years ago when we said court actions favouring gays would result in persecution of Christian organizations. And now we have gays forcing the issue with private Christian pre-schools. Why would a gay couple want to put their kid in an evangelical Christian school? Why because they want to force the issue in the courts.

    • Alain

      I suspect they are hoping to “win” a lot of money at some point.

  • LauraS

    The fact that he used his wedding as an excuse for a lame publicity stunt says everything about how important marriage is to him and his partner.

    • andycanuck

      I look forward to their divorce within, I estimate, two years.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        Wasn’t that delicious when those gay people got married in Canada some years ago and when they decided to divorce in their home state in the U,S. the courts wouldn’t recognize their marriage and they couldn’t legally divorce?

      • Alain

        It is rare for them to stay that long with the same partner. You know it just gets so boring after a couple of times with the same guy.

    • Exile1981

      So since they are getting married in all 50 states individually does that mean they have to file for divorce in all 50 states?

  • Shebel

    This could just be an excellent marketing plan.
    It is almost too pat. Everybody gets free advertising and press time.

  • andycanuck

    Of course, they never said in the bullshit hypothetical question asked by some stupid local news cunt that they wouldn’t serve gays or even not sell gays pizzas to use at their wedding but that they wouldn’t cater such a wedding that involves going on-site and setting everything up that would be forcing them to take part in the celebration. So the dick is even wrong about what point/prank he was trying to pull.

    BTW, this continent needs a civil war to decide this shit once and for all.

    • Shebel

      That is a good plan. What would each side be fight for ?
      Gays vs Religion ,decency, normalcy , family , children ……………..

    • Minicapt

      IIRC, the pizza people said they often served gays and had no problems. Their rule was only the no catering rule. So buddy just demonstrated their point works.

      Cheers

    How long, I wonder, before they’re lying to each other…

    • andycanuck

      You can’t lie if your mouth is full.

      • andycanuck

        Of pizza, I meant!
        Honest!

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    Did I ever tell you all about the time I “tricked” Taco Bell into “catering” an under-aged drug fueled orgy back in the early 1980’s?

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      That made me laugh!

    • Shebel

      Have you changed ?

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        I haven’t been to a Taco Bell in ages, if that’s what you mean.

        • Clink9

          That place is my is my dirty little secret. Not so secret now.

        • Shebel

          Yes. That is what meant.

        • Justin St.Denis

          My son worked at Taco Bell for a summer when he was in high school. I can provide you several reasons to not patronize Taco Bell. We’ve not been back in over 20 years. Some things are hard to forget……

          • Clink9

            Watch out for Starbucks also.

    • Justin St.Denis

      No you haven’t. Do tell! Even if you have to make something up. I am in the mood for something prurient today……

  • dukestreet

    If they truly wanted a real wedding, they would have done it over a year ago and planned it accordingly. This is a “we are not getting the news coverage we want so lets pretend to get married and pretend it means something” game for professional agitators. Lame
