Baking fills me with a sense of belonging, a feeling of “this is what I’m meant to be doing,” a purpose. I experience that same sense of belonging within my LGBTQ+ family. There’s an innate kinship there—an unspoken connection, rooted in acceptance and support. Never more than when I’m surrounded by this chosen family do I feel protected. Safe.
