So this very closeted person who is as it is petrified of our prejudiced society, booked a room via Goibibo.com for him and his male friend to meet in a hotel.

This person even called the hotel in advance to make sure there won't be any surprises as they had limited time in hand, after work.

FULL PAYMENT was made in ADVANCE.

They both carried their driving license (as valid IDs)

Imagine the added trauma experienced when the hotel staff DENIED them Check-In and also DENIED them any REFUND?

WHAT THE HOTEL / Goibibo.com CLAIMS: They were denied REFUND & CHECK-IN on the grounds of some policy that allows them to deny unmarried couples and those with local IDs.
This kind of policy that obviously stems from MORAL POLICING has no place in 2019 when even the law allows living-in without marriage.

Worse, in case of GOIBIBO.COM the mention of this policy was in such FINE / SMALL PRINT that its easy to miss by most. To the extent that it seems be almost DESIGNED TO BE MISSED. 

This came as a big shocker to them because they chose this hotel via Goibibo over other hotels via other websites BECAUSE there 'seemed' to be no such policy( You see, the other websites highlight this clause in COLOR to caution you BEFORE you make the payment, in sharp contrast to Goibibo ).

WHAT THE GUESTS SUSPECT: This was clearly a case of MORAL POLICING and in this specific case, homophobia, because the hotel SAW there were 2 men and then used this regressive to refuse them even though the hotel was called in advance and going by the directive of the hotel, they had carried and presented their VALID IDs ( driving licenses)

NOTE that there are websites like StayUncle.com that DOES AWAY with such moral-policing / harassing / regressive / homophobic policy. This tells you that IF Goibibo.com wanted, it too could have CHOSEN to be progressive, but no..there is perhaps easy money to be cheated off non suspecting customers.


This kind of policy that obviously stems from MORAL POLICING has no place in 2019 when even the law allows living-in without marriage.

Please lend support by signing and sharing the petition that stops hotels and travel agencies from moral-policing us in 2019 when even Supreme Court of India treats us like the adults we are, by allowing us to live-in, if we so wanted.
