Virginia Gay Couple Allowed At Athletic Club


After filing a lawsuit against Roanoke Athletic Club when they revoked their membership, gay couple Will Trinkle and partner Juan Granados, along with their two year-old, will be welcome with open arms. The Virginia-based club has changed its policies to offer "household"memberships.

According to the club's Facebook page:
"A household consists of a primary member and up to one additional household member that permanently lives in the household, and any of their dependent children under the age of 22 who also reside in the household on a permanent basis...Club dues will not change; dues for the Household Membership will be the same as the Family Membership it is replacing."

Interesting that the club would amend its policy after facing a lawsuit no? Money talks. Trinkle told ABC news the experience was like "someone [punching] us in the stomach. It's from a place we couldn't imagine that there would be this kind of discrimination and this kind of attack. We have come a long way but this shows we still have a long way to go."
