When a brutal summer came along, Will Trinkle signed his partner Juan Granados and their 2 year-old son Oliver for a membership at a Roanoke gym with a pool.
Initially the gym approved their membership, but then rescinded it after they found out the two were a gay couple. The gym said that since same-sex couples are not recognized by the state of Virginia, they made a mistake in allowing the couple get as far as they did.
Are you kidding us?!
Needless to say - the dad's were upset.
Here's what one said:
"We were really surprised. It's like someone punched us in the stomach. We couldn't imagine this kind of discrimination."
However, after getting hit with a lawsuit the club has CHANGED their policies, and will now allow families of same sex couples to join.
Here's what the vice president said:
"Since opening our doors over three decades ago, we have always strived to provide the very best in service, programs, and staffing. Our goal has been, and always will be to encourage and inspire health and wellness among all members of the communities we serve."
We're so happy that this matter has been resolved, and these two beautiful parents can now bring their son to an athletic club so he can grow up a healthy and beautiful boy like his folks certainly are!
