“Gay Days” Amusement Park Event Canceled After Male Couple Told To Stop Hugging

by matt baume July 15, 2016


Oh, Canada, what have you done? You were supposed to be better than this: an employee at Canadian amusement park Wonderland ordered a gay couple to stop hugging each other “because this is a family park.” What’s worse, the park has reportedly refused to institute sufficient sensitivity training — which probably explains why homophobic harassment is a problem there.

To their credit, Wonderland management did eventually apologize. They also said that they offer “human rights training.” What does that mean? Well, nobody seems to know, because the park won’t say any more.

As a result, PFLAG Canada has cancelled the next Gay Days outing. They’ve held it annually at Wonderland for nearly a decade, but with the park unable to commit to specific steps to prevent anti-gay behavior, there’s just no way to give them your business in good conscience.

After all, how hard would it be for them to say, “oh, yes, we include sexual orientation in our diversity training programs; and here is how employees are disciplined if they violate inclusion policies.” Or, if they do not actually do that, they could still at least say, “whoops, we should have been doing more, but this has exposed a problem in our training process and now we’re going to work with PFLAG to improve it.”

But nope. Nothing like that. Not a word. It seems as though they just don’t care.

Well, Canadian gays, you know what to do: move the party someplace where you’re welcome. Shouldn’t be too hard.
