LGBT CIVIL RIGHTS In the recent years things have became widely accepted across this country and being homosexual is one of them.

Also when they would like to get married certain venues won't let them use their services because, they don't agree with it and see it as a bad move for business. They think that because, if they have a gay wedding they will lose heterosexual marriage business. For the reason being that some people don't agree with it they won't do business with them anymore. This is total discrimination like back during the Civil Rights movement except it is over
