Gay Fla. couple claims harassment

There aren’t many openly same-sex couples in Spring Hill.

But Perry Hogg and Jesse Worf, a gay couple who have been together for more than two decades, say they’ve never had a problem.

That is, until they moved to their current home on Masada Lane.

For the last two years, they say they’ve been embroiled in a red-hot feud with the neighbors who live behind them.

Hogg says it began on Christmas Eve of 2006, when their neighbor confronted him to say he was disturbed because he’d seen the two men naked in their bedroom.

“He said, ‘We don’t approve of your lifestyle. We don’t agree with it. And put drapes up on your house,'” Hogg recalled.

Tampa Bay’s 10 contacted the neighbor, who said that he was, indeed, very disturbed to see the couple in their bedroom. He denies telling the couple that he disagreed with their lifestyle.

Hogg says another disagreement had to do with the sprinklers. He recalls hearing the sprinklers on in the backyard. He says he peeked outside to make sure they weren’t his, since someone in the neighborhood had been calling on anyone who used sprinklers outside of approved hours.
