Seattle Shop Supports Marriage Equality Campaign Selling Gay Cupcakes

A Seattle cupcake shop, Cupcake Royale, has been raising money in support of R-74, a ballot initiative in Washington to ratify the state legislature’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage. Jody Hall, the owner of Cupcake Royale, designed a special cupcake, called “The Gay,” for the campaign, and raised $7,000 from its sales in June. Due to her success selling The Gay cupcakes last month, Hall was asked to set up a political action committee (PAC) for her fundraising. To date, supporters of R-74 have raised over $2 million, compared to opponents of the initiative, who have raised only $142,000.
