A gay man says he was stopped and “humiliated” by a Southwest Airlines gate attendant in Buffalo who told him, his spouse and their three kids that they could not board because “it’s for family boarding only.”

WGRZ reports:

Grant Morse, a husband and father of three kids, says he flies Southwest between Buffalo and Ft. Lauderdale all the time, and that he’s never had an issue using family boarding privileges until now.

Morse, who is married to another man, says when they approached the gate, a Southwest employee quickly stopped them and said “this is for family boarding only.”

“I feel as though we were profiled the minute we walked up the boarding area,” said Morse by phone from Florida Sunday night. “This gate agent immediately approached my spouse and said this is for family boarding only, and my spouse looked up and said, ‘Well, we are a family. It’s myself, my spouse, and our three children.’ She said it’s family boarding only and got very sarcastic.”
