Thanks to the world of facebook I’ve just stumbled across this video put together by a gay person who was, along with several others, thrown out of Paddy’s Bar in Albury, southern New South Wales. Officially the bouncer said it was because they were intoxicated. The only problem is that none of them were. The bouncer said it wasn’t his decision and he knew they weren’t drunk but it came from management.
Sometimes it’s easy to believe that massive progress has been made, when you live in a city like Sydney. Unfortunately, stories like this prove that there is a long way to go.
