A Bar is a Public Accommodation

From LGBTQ Nation:

A popular Denver gay bar discriminated against a man when a bouncer denied him entry last year because he was dressed in drag, Colorado regulators said in a decision that could become more common as anti-discrimination laws increasingly include gender identity.

A bouncer said he turned Marzano away because his appearance didn’t match his driver’s license, and he was following a policy designed to thwart underage drinkers from entering the club. But regulators determined the bar illegally discriminates against effeminate men because its dress code bars high heels, wigs, “appearance-altering makeup” and strong perfume, according to the decision issued last month and obtained Monday.

“In other words, a female with a masculine gender presentation would be permitted to enter, whereas, a male presenting as a female would be denied entry,” civil rights division Director Steven Chavez wrote in the determination.

Its a good thing that this only happens as to public accommodations and doesn’t manifest itself with employers favoring trans men over trans women….

Right?
