Another gay couple has come forward claiming Carilion denied them a family gym membership, this time in 2008 at the Botetourt Athletic Club.

Chanda Ingram, and her partner Nikki Hyler, said they wanted to join the club after moving to the Bonsack area of Roanoke County from Charlottesville.

Ingram said she looked at the BAC [Botetourt Athletic Club] with her then 7 year old daughter, Abby.

Ingram claims the BAC representative was just about to grant her the family membership when he asked if her "husband” could come in and sign the paperwork.
