Bria Gibson and her girlfriend visited Busch Gardens theme park in Virginia, United States as part of the park’s seasonal ‘Howl-O-Scream’ event. Bria Gibson’s girlfriend, who has asked not to be named, chose a long skirt for her outfit. However, when the couple entered the park’s security check, they were denied entry by a guard who looked at the trans woman and began shaking head. Gibson told WGN-TV:”He very slowly looked her up and down, shook his head, and was like, ‘You can’t come in here because you are wearing a costume.’ After saying, ‘What costume do you think she’s wearing?’ he completely ignored us and shooed us away and nothing more to say on the subject and there was nothing more we could do about it.” Busch Gardens has rules against visitors wearing costumes which they say protect their own performers and the maintain the security of the park. The park has said that these rules were more harshly enforced due to the proximity to Halloween. Busch Gardens is part of the SeaWorld brand of resorts and has parks across the United States.
