Pies for Allies
We started this last November to spread love during the Thanksgiving holidays for queer individuals estranged from their family or loved ones.
The program started as something small, but, over the course of 3 months we were able to give over 300 pies around the world to over 25 countries in North America, Europe and Australia.
With coronavirus around, many of our friends are stuck in isolation around the world with their homophobic family members and while pies aren't going to end the hate -- it will, remind, that there is love for you.
We pay for shipping, around the world. Processing times are roughly 8-10 days.
If you would like to be added to our community of queer friends receiving pies, please chat with us, email or text me, Monique, directly at (985) 238-8831.
There's a lot of sugar in the tank this go 'round, and we like it.

“My birthday was last month. January 14th. I celebrated it in a shelter after being kicked out by my grandma after coming out as a trans. More than anything, I just need some comfort food and to know I’m thought of. It’s been a hard time.”

“I went to school in the states, but, since moving back home due to most schools going online— I’m back with my parents who literally make me read the Bible every other night for homework and pray the gay out of me. Fun stuff.”

“I wouldn’t have been able to escape my abusive home if it weren’t for your donations. I’m currently living in safe queer housing with my dear roommates but it hurts to not be allowed back home simply because I like to kiss boys, you know?”
