Lesbian couple file lawsuit against Hawaii hotel

A fascinating story has emerged from Hawaii.  According to the Pink Paper, a couple from Los Angeles have filed a lawsuit against a bed and breakfast in Hawaii, claiming they were refused a room because they were lesbians.

The story has parallels with the B&B controversies in this country which saw the Equality Act goods and services provisions tested legally, politically and socially.  It’s interesting to see a similar sort of testing in another part of the world, indicating the process that such laws perhaps inevitably, must go through.

Check out the full story here.
