It was supposed to be a Gay Day out for at Disneyland for Anthony Gilét – but he left far from happy.

He was turned away from the theme park for wearing short shorts – despite women getting through in similar outfits.

Gilét, editor of gay blog Cocktails & Cocktalk, made the complaint after trying to attend the event wearing an oversized T-shirt and workout shorts.

However, he was told his outfit was inappropriate because “it gives the impression that you have nothing on underneath” and Disneyland is a “family park”.

Gilét wrote: “I didn’t want any drama – and certainly didn’t wanna get kicked outta Disney after paying $99 entry – so put on the longer shorts I had in my bag.

But the more I thought about it, I began to question. What exactly was the issue? Was it the fact that there was so much leg on show?

Because there were countless girls walking around in booty shorts. How is it any different from a girl in those? Or even a dress?

Was she asking women if they had anything on under their short skirts too?”

Gilét continued: “I wonder was it simply an issue of a gender; a boy wearing this is not permitted, but a girl could because it’s more socially acceptable for them to wear a dress.

I fully understand that my outfit was a bit unusual and apparently not conservative enough for Disney – but I’m struggling to see the issue.”

  1. Lets be individual and sex positive
    9 October 2015

    Anthony, keep dressing in ways that you enjoy and be yourself. When our society gets safety out of mutual respect rather than prejudice, we will be happier and safer. I hate that we use dress codes to exclude people rather than include. Legs and bodies are beautiful and I want the we can enjoy and appreciate them. We absorb to much false guilt about bodies and sex and it doesn’t help anyone. Which inches of the legs are not O.K?…none. They are beautiful and we should foster pro body and pro sex attitudes and have less hangups, stigma, prejudice and celebrate individuality and self expression. Be yourself. Dr. Wendell Rosevear….”make Love infectious”.
