I couldn't think of a proper category for this weird story and I already had the category "Birds with massive peckers" so I decided that in a strange way it fit. Don't ask me how... :>
A New York Greenwich Village restaurant has settled a lawsuit with a lesbian who was chased out of the women’s bathroom and forced to leave by a bouncer because she looked masculine.
Civil Rights lawyers for Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund announced yesterday that the restaurant, Caliente Cab Company, denied the allegations but has agreed to pay Khadijah Farmer $35,000.
The incident occurred June 24 of last year after the New York City’s annual Gay Pride march.
In addition to the settlement, Caliente will amend its employee handbook with a section on customer restroom use; adopt a gender-neutral employee dress code and add gender identity to its non-discrimination policy.
Negotiations continue on whether Bubba the bouncer should get glasses.
