Do Not Tolerate Nonsense

People, We need to stop patronizing venues (clubs & bars) that hire bouncers that have no respect for alternate lifestyles...
Stop complaining & "Start Making Complaints"
Stop attending these venues, believe party promoters and club/ bar owners alike will notice that there revenue is diminishing and that will force them to do something about this growing problem.
I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to there preferences, likes & dislikes, but don't be disrespectful, as many of our night life bouncers are...
What should be required is that they all have mandatory sensitivity training, with refresher courses throughout the year and the promoters/ owners need to put into effect a "No Tolerance" rule (which would simply state: If you as security in anyway are disrespectful, out of line or overly aggressive you will be let go, no questions asked).
It is really ridiculous to me that these venues are quick to take our money, but not trying to make this a safe space for us... They search us aggressively (like gay is a disease and they don't wont to catch it), they talk to us like we don't matter and we beneath them and sometimes are physically over aggressive (and I've witnessed that a few times).
Stand up for yourselves or this will continue to keep happening, put a end to the hate & ignorance...
And to the bouncers/ security, You are well informed before hand that a gay party is taking place, If you don't want to be around it, Then call out, but don't come and pass your ignorance, hate and stupidity onto one of the most successful group of people in the World, You look down on us, But most of us are highly successful and can probably pay your salaries.
