Lesbian photographer denied work because ‘children shouldn’t be influenced to be gay’
A lesbian photographer has been fired by a customer who didn’t want her child “to think that being gay is OK”.
Faith Grace, 21, was asked by a pregnant mother to take maternity photos of her – only to have the offer torn up once her sexuality was revealed.
The photographer from Mobile, Alabama, posted photos of their interaction on Twitter, which have gone viral as supporters have registered their outrage.
The prospective customer texted Faith over the weekend to say: “This is McKenna from last night. I was reaching out to you about maternity photos!
“I went through your personal Instagram account to get your photography business account and on your personal pad I saw that you had a pride flag.
“Are you gay or do you have family that’s gay?”
Responding to this with fairness and without making assumptions about the strange enquiry, Faith wrote: “Hey McKenna! Thanks for reaching out.
“Nobody in my fam is gay but I am – that’s why I have it on my account.”
And that’s when the mother revealed her true colours.
