This Article interprets the Supreme Court's decision, Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, as a critical extension of Derrick Bell's interest-convergence thesis into the LGBTQ movement. Chiefly, Masterpiece reveals how the Court has been more willing to accommodate gay individuals who appear more assimilated and respectable-such as those who participated in the marriage-equality decisions-than LGBTQ individuals who are less "mainstream" and whose exhibited queerness appear threatening to the heteronormative status quo.
