Default NYC woman fired after engagement reveals sexual orientation, lawsuit claims


NYC woman fired after engagement reveals sexual orientation, lawsuit claims

One of the happiest moments of her life allegedly led a Bronx woman to the unemployment line.

Nurse’s aide Tanya Gamble claims she was regularly promoted and given raises at Fieldston Lodge Care Center in the Bronx until May 2019, when a video of her engagement to her girlfriend was posted to Facebook.

The clip “immediately” made the rounds at the Bronx nursing home where no one knew Gamble was gay, prompting “negative attention” from colleagues, she charges in a Manhattan Federal Court lawsuit.

“You don’t look gay,” one colleague allegedly told Gamble, while another quipped, “I didn’t know you were like that,” snapping his fingers at her, according to the complaint.

Others repeatedly asked if she planned on going to the Gay Pride Parade, Gamble claimed in court papers.

In the weeks after the video was revealed, Fieldson bosses allegedly retracted a previously made offer to promote Gamble to staffing coordinator.

“The daily comments, awkward silence and looks, as well as jokes, continued until” she was fired in August 2019 after six years on the job, she charges in the legal filing.

Her bosses allegedly told her, “We don’t need you anymore. We will find someone else to do your job.”

She claims her sexual orientation “was the motivating, if not the only factor” in her wrongful termination.

The nursing home did not respond to a request for comment.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
