Hood River, Ore., bakery won’t make cake for lesbians

HOOD RIVER, Ore. (AP) — A couple planning a marriage say they were denied a wedding cake by a Hood River baker because they are lesbians.

Erin Hanson and Katie Pugh told KATU when they went for a tasting at Fleur Cakes, owner Pam Regentin refused service because of the same-sex wedding.

Regentin said despite anti-discrimination law, she believes she has “the liberty to live by my principles.”

In February a bakery in Gresham also turned away a same-sex couple. The state Bureau of Labor and Industries is still investigating.
