Two California women are suing a Hawaii bed and breakfast for denying them a room because they're gay.
Lambda Legal on Monday filed a discrimination lawsuit against Aloha Bed & Breakfast in Honolulu on behalf of Diane Cervelli and Taeko Bufford, of Long Beach.
Cervelli says she called the Hawaii Kai business in 2007 to book a room for a trip to visit friends. When she asked for one bed, the owner asked if they were lesbians and refused to book a room for them.
The lawsuit argues that violates Hawaii's public accommodation law prohibiting discrimination against guests.
Owner Phyllis Young referred questions to her attorney, who did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
According to the lawsuit, the Hawaii Civil Rights Commission investigated and that Young said homosexuality is "detestable."
