About Morgan (She/Her)
I'm a queer, wonky maker. I've always been so. The drive to make things led me to pursuing an art degree and, after working for nearly five years as a stockbroker (yeah), I traded my paints for chocolate. The first chocolate thing I made was, unsurprisingly enough, a truffle. Eleven years later, Queer Chocolatier finally exists.
Working with chocolate in the kitchen led to other formative experiences; I pursued an undergraduate sociology degree and learned about the concept of food security. I ran with that concept to earn a master's degree where I met the woman who would become my wife. Then I went to a doctoral program and promptly became a Ph.D. dropout.
My wonkiness regarding food never waned. I'm still driven by inequalities of food access and the economic injustices faced by the very producers of our food. Such drive led to my choice in sourcing the chocolate that I do. I want to do my part to make food justice and food sovereignty a reality and Queer Chocolatier will operate with this as the True North for business practices.
Also, I can cluck like a chicken.
about queer chocolatier
My wife, Cheri, and I have been married since 2015. With her love and support, I launched Queer Chocolatier in 2017 to serve as a marketplace for my chocolates and artwork for decorating homes of queer and trans* folx. We also collaborate and co-author various think pieces on topics ranging from chocolate, food production, LGBTQIA, gender, and politics.
Cheri and I are committed to the belief that the personal is always political. That holds true for Queer Chocolatier. As queer women, we cannot and will not separate our identity from business.
Our mission is deliciously radical: We strive to provide high-quality handmade chocolate confections while also standing in solidarity with queer and trans* folx.
At Queer Chocolatier, we are unapologetic in who we love. We find beauty in diversity. We provide indulgence for all.
Queer Chocolatier is proudly located in Downtown Muncie, Indiana!
