Businesses, Like This Spa, Continue to Discriminate
A gay couple in Naples, Florida has shared that they walked into a day spa where they had already pre-paid for a couple’s massage and they were rudely turned away because they were gay.
Michael Garcia and his boyfriend Armando filmed the manager at the Joy Feet Spa and posted it on Facebook where it immediately gained attention. The spa began getting backlash in support of the couple on Facebook and Yelp.
Garcia told NBC:
I was just in shock. I was like, ‘Why?’ He was like, ‘Cause it’s female and male,’ and he just kept pointing to a poster on the wall for couple’s massages. You hear stories and stuff, but here where I live in Naples, Florida? I would’ve never thought that would happen.
