Australian pub bars heterosexuals

BBC World wrote:The hotel's ban is a first for Australia
A gay pub in the city of Melbourne has won the right to ban heterosexuals - the first time such legislation has been passed in Australia.

The Victorian state civil and administrative tribunal ruled the Peel Hotel could ban patrons based on their sexual orientation.

The pub's management said the move would stop groups of heterosexual men and women abusing gay people.

Civil liberties groups have supported the decision.

'Safe balance'

The tribunal's president said groups of straight women found homosexual men entertaining but that such attention was dehumanising, the BBC's Phil Mercer in Sydney says.

Managers complained raucous hen nights and stag parties created a poisonous atmosphere for its gay clientele, our correspondent says.

"If I can limit the number of heterosexuals entering the Peel, then that helps me keep the safe balance," the hotel's manager, Tom McFeely, told Australian radio, according to the Reuters news agency.

Mr McFeely says he wants a "safe balance"

He said while Melbourne had 2,000 venues catering for heterosexuals, his was the only bar aimed exclusively at gay men.

Civil liberties groups said homosexuals should be allowed to relax in places without fear of bullying or intimidation.

Australia's equal opportunity laws prevent discrimination based on race, religion or sexuality.

Sounds like fun, my friend said a Brazilian guy tried to take advantage of her and her gay friends had to beat him up.

Mehh, that's a bit exxxtreme really...how the hell are they going to police it? Some kind of mandatory pash reigime at the front entrance? Compulsory same-sex kissing booth to cast off any suspicions of heterosexuality? Lordy, look out "fag hags"...

Apparently gay men only. Discretion to refuse entry to straight guys and girls, and lesbians.
I wonder where Transgender and cross dressers fit in?

Hmmmm.

Well for a gay guy a trany is probably similar to a girl trying to look like a guy to a straight guy. This isn’t a turn on but if the girl is hot enough she can probably get away with it.

In conclusion it will probably be on a case by case basis, for example, Georgina Bayer probably wouldn’t get in?

The way I read it was that the manager had the right to refuse entry to hetrosexuals. e.g could kick out the people who just show up to laugh etc.

kissing ain't enough proof, need a "back door booth".

I can understand the manager not wanting hetero people in there, but why the fuck would his clientele complain about lesbians being in the bar?

I don't get it.
