Why the name CAKE?
The premise behind the name: “You deserve to have your cake and eat it too”. The Trans + Gender-Expansive community has historically been one of the most underserved communities.
There’s systematic discrimination that oppresses all-trans folx, leaving them with the concept of “you can be trans, but at some expense or sacrifice” (safety, health, discrimination etc.).
The word CAKE has multiple meanings within this organization and as a part of pop culture.
CAKE can be used to reference a part of one’s body that moves during dance, as well as positively empowering the features of all beautiful bodies.
We believe everyone deserves to have their CAKE and EAT it too, that is why our Fitness-Dance classes are for everyone.
