Great America amusement park in Santa Clara, California is being sued for sexual harassment for posting a souvenir photo of a gay couple riding a roller coaster on one of its rides, and publicly mocking them with a thought bubble containing an anti-gay slur, the SF Chronicle's John King reports:
The two men exited past a counter where park employees were selling photographs taken of patrons during the ride. Person and Yang declined to purchase a shot showing them from overhead, holding hands.
Later in the day, friends discovered the same photograph on display at a different ride's counter – but with a thought bubble added that contained the phase "Were (sic) Fags!"
The 10-count lawsuit asks for damages, saying the men were distressed at the time and have continued to suffer humiliation and discomfort.
Great America did not respond to the paper's request for comment.
