Stand with gay couple denied flowers by their florist

Support Curt and RobCurt Freed and Robert Ingersoll wanted to buy flowers for their wedding, but a flower shop in the Tri-Cities turned them away because they are gay. A lower court ruled that the florist’s refusal to serve them violated the state’s anti-discrimination law. The historic case is now before the state’s highest court, and the ACLU is representing the couple. The Washington Supreme Court will hear the case on the morning of Tuesday, November 15 at Bellevue College.

Discrimination hurts.  No one should be turned away from a public business just for who they are. The lower court said clearly that businesses open to the general public may not violate anti-discrimination laws, even on the basis of sincerely held religious beliefs.

Dear Curt and Rob,

Thank you for taking a courageous stand against discrimination. Our anti-discrimination laws are intended to ensure that businesses treat all members of the community fairly. No one should be turned away from a business because of who they are or who they love. 

We are all entitled to our religious beliefs, but no one’s religious beliefs make it okay to ignore the law and harm others.

Thank you so much for standing up for equality for everyone in Washington state! We are standing with you.
