A gay boss of Hoseasons holiday firm is taking a stand against homophobia and racism by telling customers with extreme and unacceptable views to 'go away and book with another agent'.
Simon Altham was speaking as he launched one of the 75-year-old company's first LGBT-friendly brochures, which features images of a gay couple in a hot tub.
The Mirror reports Mr Altham as saying: "I came to the conclusion that Hoseasons as a brand needed to stand for something, and I don't want racist or homophobic customers booking with Hoseasons.
"Go hell for leather in the LGBT space, be brave, use same-sex models in our brochures.
"If you are homophobic or racist, Hoseasons isn't the right brand for you. I think it was important to make that decision - book with another agent.
"You've got to be bold enough. Why would you want racist or homophobic people buying your products? They're not nice people.
"If that is your market, you've got to ask yourself 'is that the right market?'"
