The Greencoat Boy pub in Westminster has refused to serve LGBT Labour members this evening at their post-AGM social.
The manager told members he would have refused their booking if he’d known it was for an LGBT group. The size of the group – shown here standing at the bar after they were refused service – shows just how much custom this pub was prepared to turn away:
In PR terms there are probably few more stupid things you can do than piss off LGBT Labour. ‘Greencoat Boy’ is currently the top Twitter trending topic in the UK. You can show your support on Facebook here. You can also take the following action, and I’d encourage you to do so:
– email the chain that runs The Greencoat Boy, Punch Taverns
– email Cllr Audrey Lewis, Chair of Licensing, Westminster Council
– if you’re a Labour supporter, join the fightback against homophobia and support your LGBT comrades by joining LGBT Labour.
