Is Maple Grove Hot Springs LGBTQIA+ Friendly?

“Are you LGBTQIA+ friendly?”⁠

⁠Our answer? HELL YES. We are LGBTQIA+.

⁠Our guests and our team include a diverse mix of beautifully loving humans that stretch all the norms in all the ways, and it’s entirely normal around here. ⁠

⁠This is one of the most sobering questions we get. It’s not often, but it’s enough to serve as a powerful and important reminder that there is an amazing community of fellow hot springers, nature lovers, and just HUMANS who must ask this question. ⁠⁠

Not because they are looking for any special treatment, but because the most basic decency is not a guarantee.⁠

Because at some hotel, shop, store, or public encounter, services were denied, looks were given, words were said, judgments were made, and hurtful actions were taken. ⁠

⁠It’s a question that most straight folks would never even consider. And it’s time we consider it. ⁠

⁠Whether by sex, gender, race, faith, beliefs, or more, outdated thinking creates other-ness, which breeds unwelcome-ness. ⁠

⁠The next time you go somewhere and don’t ask this question, consider what a privilege that is and what your responsibility is to ensure NOBODY ever has to ask it again. ⁠

⁠Which reminds us: this queer boss is headed back this Spring as one of your hosts, and we couldn't be more excited!
