Gay hotels investigated for breaching UK equality laws


Gay guesthouses accused of discriminating:

The Equality and Human Rights Commission is examining whether "gay-only" guesthouses breach new laws designed to prevent people being treated unfairly in the provision of goods or services.

... The watchdog has also said it spent £15,320 of taxpayers' money on projects to ensure hotels run by Christians are complying with the law and has written to warn them over their treatment of homosexuals.

Hoteliers who run same-sex guesthouses fear they could be put out of business if they are forced to open their doors to heterosexual couples as it will make their core market feel more self-conscious. [Source]
