South African Guesthouse Discriminates Against Gays

"A gay couple is livid after allegedly being turned away by a guesthouse because the lodge did not have a policy on homosexuals. Lindani Mchunu and a gay friend, Lebogang Modise, feel downhearted and discriminated against because they were forced to drive through the night after they were allegedly rejected by the management at Dikolobe Guesthouse in Seabe village, northeast of Pretoria.

Modise said yesterday that they arrived at the guesthouse on Wednesday night – exhausted and hungry.

“We wanted to book as a couple and management told us they did not cater for gay people,” he said" (Gay Agenda)

Ya know, I'm sure their money spends just
the same as others. This is bad PR for that
place. Just wait till the management has the
same thing happen to them.

As soon as they see how many emails they get, I think they will regret their decision. LGBT tourism is HUGE!

I think it is terrible to refuse people a stay in a place like this. It is just like saying black people or women can't stay somewhere. Outdated and disgustingly prejudice.

Also, on a different note, there seems to be a ton of comments popping up that are discriminatory and cruel. Such as the one above mine in here and the Anonymous person who is extremely cruel in the the "Word of the Gay: Gay Lisp" post. Is there anyway to stop all these people from adding such hateful comments on this blog. It is very disconcerting and hurtful when you go to a gay blog and see "faggot" posted everywhere. Anything we can do?
