Legal action is being launched in a dispute between the National Theatre and a group of lesbian claimants.
A group of women claim their human rights were violated when they were refused service at a theatre bar in July this year.
They allege they were turned away for sporting t-shirts with definitions, including “Lesbian – noun – a woman who loves other women”, before being confronted and asked to leave by security.
The counterclaim is that they were shouty, bolshie and just not nice to have in a bar. It’s the detail of the lezzie claim that’s fun though:
In legal documents seen by The Telegraph, it is claimed that the lesbian women were turned away due to staff feeling their t-shirts would offend a transgender colleague.
The mind boggles really. Probably the answer here being people who are offended by t-shirts shouldn’t work in a public bar…..
