Will Trinkle, Juan Granados and their 2 year old son, Oliver recently got the business-end of Virginia politics when they were denied a family membership to Roanoke Athletic Club based on the fact that their family consists of gay parents.
The couple of eight years sued the Roanoke Athletic Club and its parent company Carilion Clinic, and won! Deets after the hop.
One gym in Virginia is putting its big, straight foot down, and letting two gay dads know that their illegal behavior won’t be tolerated. Qweerty reports that the Roanoke Athletic Club denied the family package that Will Trinkle and Juan Granados applied for – after initially accepting it.
Trinkle, Granados and their 2 year old son, Oliver intended to use the gym like any other family, but soon after their application was accepted, the Trinkle-Granados family (yeah, that’s right, family) received a letter in the mail letting them know that the prior acceptance was “by mistake.” Ya know, because since Virginia doesn’t recognize gay marriage or same-sex civil union, the Trinkle-Granados family isn’t considered…well…a family.
Here. We go. Again.
