Brandon Roper and Giuseppe Cellura claim they gave each other a “peck” on the lips while at the Tehama Ridge Pool last week. Moments later, a lifeguard approached them.

“You can’t do that!” she scolded. “I’m calling the management!”
The pool manager, who also happened to be the lifeguard’s older brother, asked the couple a few questions about what happened. When they told him, he replied by saying that public displays of affection were strictly forbidden.
“Is there a rule about PDA?” Roper replied. “Or is it just because we’re gay?”
Roper then went to check the official rule board posting at the pool’s entrance to find no mention of PDA anywhere.
In a statement, Bearfoot Management, who manage Tehama Ridge Pool, said the lifeguard who initially scolded the men has been fired.
“Our company’s policies are to ensure a family friendly environment at each pool we manage,” the statement said. “Our expectation is to enforce this practice without discrimination of any sort.”
