“The Red Raven Espresso Parlor wants to clarify that all are welcome in our space. We do not attempt to discriminate,” he wrote. “The intent of our ‘ban’ was to satirize the environment that the legislation created for the LGBTQ+ community by voting against SB 2279. Here at the Raven we have workers and patrons who are included in this community who are directly impacted by this stringent and detached ruling. We stand by these individuals, as they are our families and friends. Its time the legislation affirms what the majority believes to be a fair, human practice of non-discrimination. In short, these 56 individuals are still welcomed into our establishment; however, their action/non-action has impacted far more than 56 individuals. Our ‘ban’ ponders the question, ‘What if that discrimination were re-directed, and reversed?’ All we can confirm is that, either way, it feels icky.”
And thanks, Cynical, for the link.
