ICYMI, Tinder, LBB and Gaysi Family are coming together to create Queer Made - a digital space for products, services and businesses owned and run by India’s LGBTQIA+ community.  

With Queer Made, we have been able to discover and amplify some unique businesses: where you will soon be able to shop from as well! This curation puts the spotlight on scrumptious home-bakers, patisseries and restaurants that bring you the joy of delicious comfort foods. Take a look.

Little Alwars Bakehouse - Samyuktha

We all love us some fresh homemade bread and desserts. Little Alwars Bakehouse by Samyuktha in Mysore has been one of our precious finds this past year. Whether it’s a simple butterscotch cake or her version of plain au chocolate, there’s plenty of wares to choose from here. With vegetarian and vegan options Samyuktha hopes to educate people about their food choices. Their weekly changing menu makes the Little Alwars Bakehouse a conscious business that sources its ingredients locally and seasonally. Samyuktha looks forward to opening her own all inclusive small cafe soon and is currently working on a small menu feature for it as well. You can check out her creations on her Instagram account and place your order by WhatsApping her at 09901897121. We already have! 

Argha Naskar

Healthy chocolates for your cravings, what!?  Argha’s Creations has a range of them with no preservatives or extra sweeteners, and can be enjoyed by people with diabetes too! Although chocolates are their specialty, Argha’s Creations also offers bonbons, Bengali platters, cakes, customised chocolates and other sweet delights that you will want to stock up on. 

Argha Naskar, the eponymous home baker behind this venture is only 18 years old. He is a passionate homecook, chocolatier and baker par excellence, based out of Kolkata. To get your hands on these chocolates (and more), check out their Instagram page. Once you stop scrolling and drooling, ping Argha and he will customise your order according to your preferences (and allergies). He also has vegetarian and vegan options, so truly inclusive in every sense of the word.
