Lesbian Couple Told to Leave Sheraton on Their Anniversary for Daring to Kiss

By Kevin Farrell via

Kenyata White and Aeimee Diaz were celebrating their one-year anniversary Sunday at Sheraton’s District restaurant, inside the downtown hotel, when they were asked to leave.

The couple says they shared a simple kiss and they didn’t think anything of it until the manager came up to them and told them to get a room.

The women said the manager told them other patrons had complained to him.

“By no means at all were we doing any inappropriate activity. It was a light kiss a kiss that you could give your friends on the lips. It wasn’t any make out at all and so we were very puzzled as to why we need to get a room,” White said.

After the manager saw how upset they were they say he apologized and offered them free drinks if they would leave and come back another time.

  1. In my opinion,the manager of this hotel handled this situation poorly. Instead of asking the couple to come back another time to get a room, they should of told the complaining persons to" get used to the changing times, that are all good changes for all". Then they should of have offered the anniversary celebrating couple free drinks on the hotel , or a bottle of champagne and immediate registered them into their room. The way this was handled was like the lesbian couple should of not been showing any intimate emotions during their anniversary....this is outright discrimination and sad for the couple who were led to feel like they should be ashamed of their love. This is not acceptable in any way, and should never be tolerated.
