Fuck a whole bunch of that

Apparently, Houston now has a Guerrilla Queer Bar group. I've been going occasionally to the one in Austin since 2002. Part of the reason I don't go that often is that we overwhelm the bar... No one drinks like more than 100 gays and lesbians. The bars LOVE it because it usually gives them the best night of their entire year.

Apparently, the inaugural invasion in Houston didn't, you know, go so well...

Nearly 100 gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people were refused entry to Union Bar and Lounge in Midtown Friday while others were welcomed.

Patrons started lining up at about 9:40 p.m. and were told to wait in line and not allowed inside, even as straight-appearing people were waved through. As the line grew and patrons waited in the rain, employees at the door told those who were that they were maintaining a "ratio." Later, the bar employees simply indicated they had the right to refuse anyone.

"I was shocked to be a victim of that kind of discrimination in a city like Houston in 2009," said Neal Falgoust, a Houston law student. "I have never experienced anything like that before in my life."

I don't know who is dumber... the morons managing the bar or the mo's waiting IN THE RAIN to get in. Go spend your money somewhere else.
