Don’t Blame Atlantis and Celebrity Cruises for Dominican Fiasco

Published Date Author: , April 16th, 2012

Cruise ShipWhat happens when you bang some dude on the balcony of your Atlantis-sponsored cruise ship for an entire town in Dominica to see? You get locked the f*ck up, that’s what.

I’ve been following this gay scandal du jour since Queerty (you know, the open-minded and objective blog that’s “Free of an Agenda. Except that Gay One.”) since buried details about the encounter surfaced on the website the day it happened. Instead of conveying the facts as they were presented by what Queerty called the bigot-indulging Dominca News Online, the GayCities-owned Internet destination chose to spin the story to make it seem like it was (“gasp” – in Queerty’s flippant terms) everyone else’s problem except the two men who were arrested for bumping uglies on the boat.

Since then it seems that everybody has an opinion on the matter, especially those in our community who look for any opportunity to cry homophobia. There was even a boycott established against Atlantis Events and its head honcho Rich Campbell threatening to ruin the largest producer of gay and lesbian cruises and resort vacations if it doesn’t remove Dominca from its ports of call.
