Ice Cream Entrepreneurs

When gourmet food trucks began dishing up artisanal delights on wheels, this romantic and professional couple were there at the forefront, offering unusual, high-quality soft-serve ice cream with plenty of queer quirk. Since then they’ve parlayed their cheeky Big Gay Ice Cream brand into two brick-and-mortar shops in New York City, served up desserts at a politician’s same-sex wedding and A-Lister affairs, and made quite a few TV appearances along the way. The question still drives the guys crazy: “Does the ice cream make me gay?” No, it doesn’t. But would that be such a bad thing?
