Welcome to Black Walnut Point Inn on Maryland’s Tilghman Island, a private estate at the end of a fifty eight acre bird sanctuary. Our property is one of three gay owned and operated businesses on Tilghman Island. Our Tilghman Island B&B offers the seclusion and charm of the 1840’s – offering one of the most unique wedding venues on the eastern shore. We’re located just two hours from Washington, DC, Baltimore and Philadelphia. It’s hard to believe the peace and quiet provided by our beautiful gardens and lawns surrounded on three sides by nine miles of water. There are nesting eagles, otters and schooling fish all around us.

A winery in Paarl, South Africa turned a gay couple away when the couple asked if the Estate would host their wedding. Gay Star News reports:

The owners of Diemerskraal wine estate in Paarl, South Africa, say ‘it didn’t feel right’ to host the wedding and reception of Emile Butler and his fiance Gareth O’Brien. Though Butler told South African newspaper the Weekend Argus they just wanted an apology from owners Daan and Jeanette Morkel, he has also filed a discrimination complaint with the Human Rights Commission. ‘Why is my money not good enough for Diemerskraal?’ Butler asked in his interview.

In a country that so recently came to terms with its discrimination against its black citizens, is it okay to discriminate against its gay lesbian ones?
