Boycott Hunters:
For Trans Inclusion in Chicago

GLN permalink 11-19-2009

Members from the wide and diverse LGBT community will come together at the Center on Halsted for an informational community conversation on the Hunters Nightclub door policy.

In August, Hunters Night Club in Elk Grove began turning away individuals whose ID picture did not match their gender presentation at the door, barring many transgender/ gender-variant people.

Join us:
Monday, November 23 from 7-9PM
Center on Halsted- Youth Space
3656 N Halsted Street, Chicago

Presentations will be given by prominent third-party advocates in the LGBT community on state and county ID laws, and a discussion between transgender organizers and Hunters will follow.

As promised by transgender organizers in October, Hunters managers have been invited to present their case in person. However, they did not respond to this request. Should Hunters managers fail to attend this community meeting, a third-party moderator will facilitate an educational discussion between transgender advocates and community members on Illinois ID laws, the Human Rights Act as it pertains to gender identity, and transgender community issues.

Please join us as we begin a community conversation on Hunters' door policy, and the legal issues that surround this controversial issue.
