Media Invite: SAHRC Western Cape Provincial Office takes Beloftebos Wedding venue to Equality Court for refusing same sex couple

Attention: Editors and Reporters

1 March 2020

The SAHRC Western Cape provincial office will tomorrow be launching a court application against Beloftebos wedding venue at the Western Cape High Court (Equality Court). This comes after several complaints received by the SAHRC against the wedding venue for allegedly discriminating against same sex couples refusing them to rent the venue for same-sex weddings. The SAHRC views Beloftebos conduct as unconstitutional as one cannot on the basis of their religious beliefs, discriminate against the sexual orientation of others.

The application will be launched as follows:
Date: 2 March 2020
Venue : Western Cape High Court (Equality Court)
 Time: 11:00

A short press briefing will follow at the stairs of the court after issuing of the court papers by the SAHRC
