If you know me, then you know I love to read about a good skydiving sexual harassment case. This one, however, has a twist. Long Island skydiving instructor Donald Zarda was fired from his job after a female customer complained that the instructor touched her inappropriately while the two were strapped together on a dive. The Mile High Cop-a-Feel Club? Zarda, though, says no such thing happened, because how could it? He’s gay.
“I’m 100 percent gay,” Zarda told The New York Post. “So, you’re accusing me — the gay guy — of touching the girl inappropriately? The situation is so bizarre.”
And if anyone is questioning the contention that Zarda is gay, feast your eyes on his Facebook profile picture, seen following the jump.
The defense rests, you honor.
Zarda’s Skydive Long Island boss, Ray Maynard, says he knew of Zarda’s sexuality, and that wasn’t the reason he was fired. But Zarda has filed a discrimination lawsuit against his employer, saying that other skydiving companies are refusing to hire him.
But now he’s free to pursue his other passion; gay superhero crimefighting.
