NZ union activist fired by McDonalds for being too gay.

From John Clarke and Rebuilding Militant Labor in Toronto:
How about, Toronto? This activist with Unite Union in New Zealand was fired by McDonalds for exposing underpayment of workers. He was also told by his manager that he could not continue to work there unless he became 'less gay'. If anyone needs a reason to picket McDonalds, this is a good one.

This would be an issue to organize a protest at McDonald's in your area. Sean who was also victimized for being gay  Here is an example of it and below this is a short clip of a protest in solidarity with Sean that took place in Dublin Ireland.
