A gay Canadian couple blasted a homophobic photographer on Facebook for refusing to shoot their wedding.

Yahoo writes:

[Mike] Cerantola told CTV Montreal that he and his fiancé, Victor Rivas, were setting up a meeting with Giulio Granata, when Granata asked whether they would be shooting at the bride’s or groom’s house. “I mentioned that there’s only going to be one house, since we already live with each other, and I said, ‘There is no bride; we’re two guys.’”

Granata’s letter in response was a politely worded refusal of service: “Mike, I regret that I cannot photograph this wedding because it is at odds with my personal religious beliefs. I’m so sorry, and I hope you’re not offended. I do wish you success, and I hope you can find what you’re looking for.”

And so Cerantola took to Facebook, where he wrote a post calling out the homophobic photographer. The post got massive attention.

Since the post, Premiere Productions has been inundated with negative media attention and critical comments on its Facebook page.

The couple, on the other hand, has received an outpouring of sympathy. They’ve also been told to sue the photographer for violating Quebec’s anti-discrimination laws.
