At a November 2 show at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Ablerta, an usher stopped two women from kissing each other during his performance.
One of the women, Allyson MacIvor (who is a professional musician in her own right with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and has played on stage with the likes of Sarah McLachlan) wrote about the incident on her Facebook as well as talked to the CBC about it.
"I embraced my girlfriend, and some staff member came in between us, and she said, 'This is not allowed here. [The manager] apologized profusely, but it still didn't help the incident and the hurt that came out of this.
"[Posting about it on Facebook] was actually the first time that I announced to the world that I was gay."
