Never Mind, a gay bar in Copenhagen, has sparked international media attention because of a new rule that bans straight couples from kissing in the bar.
According to the owner, a common complaint from guests is that there are too many straight people in the bar.
Never Mind’s owner told the Copenhagen Post that he didn’t see the “big problem” in his establishment’s policy. “I know that we need equal rights, but this is a gay bar,” Christian Carlsen is quoted as saying. “We obviously have a lot of guests who aren’t homosexuals and that’s fine as long as they understand that this is a gay bar. The gays can’t go to so many other places to meet each other.”
The Huffington Post has an interesting debate going based on this story and I’d like to add to it. Is this OK? Should gay bars have policies against straight couples, or is this discrimination just as bad as banning gay couples from non-gay bars?
