They were turned down for WHAT?!

A new report has surfaced which has us really disturbed! Airbnb, the popular lodge rental website, recently banned one of its users, a woman by the name of Heather, for discriminating against gays. She allegedly kicked Jonathan Wang and his partner Brent out of her home in Galveston, Texas… AFTER they had already booked and unpacked.

Now we're all for people being entitled to their own opinions, but not like this! Wang recounted the situation:

"Heather asked me, where my wife was. Who is this person? I said it was my significant other Brent. She said I thought you were bringing a wife. I said I didn't say that specifically. I said is that going to be OK? She said. It's not."

As a result of being kicked out, Jonathan and Brent had to find a hotel last minute to book.

Airbnb not only responded to the situation, but you'll never guess what they had to say about Heather's treatment of the situation. Watch (below)!

All of those donations apparently helped.

Memories Pizza, the controversial Indiana pizzeria whose owners claimed they wouldn't cater to a gay wedding because of their religious beliefs, reopened on Thursday night and hosted a full house when they did.

The packed restaurant was filled with the owner's friends, family, and people who came down to support the controversial restaurant.

And the owner, talking at the opening night, claimed he was happy to be providing service again and would absolutely do everything the same all over again. Unfortunately.

Miley Cyrus, Hillary Clinton, & More Speak Out Against Indiana's New LGBT Discrimination Law!

no title

Indiana just passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act after Governor Mike Pence signed it into law, and people are not happy!

Why?

Because the thrust of the new law is that businesses are now legally free to discriminate based on sexual orientation and gender identity as long as they claim their religion is against it.

[ Video: Perez Talking #BoycottDolceGabbana On CNN! ]

But not all businesses want to turn people away based on prejudice. The NCAA and Gen Con have already threatened to lessen their presence or pull out of the state entirely.

Yep, the jocks AND the nerds are against it! LOLz!

But those aren't the only strange bedfellows this deplorable bill is making! Celebs from Miley Cyrus to Hillary Clinton have come out against the law on social media.

Umm… Did Kansas Governor Sam Brownback Just Remove Non-Discrimination Protections For LGBT State Employees???

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikCrazzzzy

Oh and women can no longer vote!

… is what we expect Kansas Governor Sam Brownback might say next after pulling something like this.

He rescinded an executive order that protected state employees from discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

This man literally undid the good that former Governor Kathleen Sebelius did for the LGBT community in Kansas.

Olympic Host Cities Now Have To Sign New Anti-Discrimination Clause As Part Of Contract! Finally!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayOlympicsAmazing

The IOC has amended the standard Olympic host city's contract to include an anti-discrimination clause to protect LGBT athletes!

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) sure took their sweet time protecting the rights of their LGBT athletes.

But we guess after the Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, it was time to take a stand.

Russia's anti-gay "propaganda" law must've been the straw that broke the camel's back. Glad it got the IOC to put a special clause in the contract all Olympic host cities must sign.

michelle duggar alleges that if new transgender anti discrimination rules are passed child predators will frequent public restrooms

This reality star is trying to use her influence to change some impending laws.

It's just a shame what she wants is rooted in ignorance and lack of human compassion — but we bet it's not gonna work!

19 Kids And Counting star Michelle Duggar recently recorded a message for the residents of Fayetteville, Arkansas, and it basically asked them to support her in her attempts to strike down a vote on stopping discrimination against transgender residents and giving them more rights in their community - including public restrooms.
