A gay man was removed from a pool party this weekend because of what he was wearing. Chris Donohoe, a gay New Yorker, was on vacation in Vegas when he was escorted out of the Encore Beach Club, according to his post on Facebook.
Chris, a guest of Wynn Las Vegas (the hotel that owns and operates the Encore Beach Club), was visiting Las Vegas with a business partner and celebrating his birthday. In the post that was accompanied by a video on Facebook, Chris says “I was made to leave the pool for wearing a Mr. Turk bathing suit that they said was not ‘in integrity’ with the brand of the pool party. In other words, I was kicked out for being a gay man wearing a bathing suit that was just a little too gay for The Encore Beach Club Las Vegas to tolerate….This is what homophobia looks like.”
