I am not gay - but when I was sailing on Cunard's Queen Mary 2 I saw very large FOD meetings onboard (this was a transatlantic cruise) and they were widely attended by at least 30 people.
They were announced far in advance in the program and space set aside for the meeting in a beautiful lounge.
Cunard was managed very closely by the Princess group until just recently when they returned management to U.K. - so it is little surprise they were like Princess.
I hope for the sake of the gay community they remain as they were.
I am the editor, but I also speculate, ask questions and play devil's advocate. I reserve the right to change my mind.
