First there was the photographer who didn’t want to participate in the gay wedding. That caused an uproar.
Now there is a gay photographer who’s upset that a client didn’t want to hire them. That’s causing an uproar.
According to the gay photographer she was contacted by a woman to take maternity photos. After she saw her social media profile, which included a gay pride flag, the woman contacted her back and said she didn’t want her young daughter to think she thought it was okay to be gay, because she didn’t approve of the lifestyle.
There is still the distinct possibility that the gay photographer fabricated the entire exchange, but assuming she didn’t, is a customer allowed to hire who they want to hire?
Maternity photography is a particularly intimate experience. Isn’t someone allowed to pick and choose who they are most comfortable with?
According to the photographer, apparently not. According to many commenters, apparently not.
