Video: Atlanta Bar Denies Entry to Drag Queen

Alissah Brooks

Gay rights groups are calling for a boycott after an Atlanta bar denied entry to a popular cross dressing performer.

A bouncer at Don Pollo Bar and Grill on Buford Highway denied entry to drag queen performer Alissah Brooks, whose driver’s license identified him as a male, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“My reaction is simply just surprised… So it feels awkward,” Brooks told Project Q Atlanta. ” (I) Feel a little less than.”

Brooks and his friends walked back to their cars after the encounter with the bouncer. But one friend returned to the door to pester the bouncer with questions — and videotape his answers.

From The AJC.com:

In the video, a restaurant representative tells Brooks’ friends the bouncer was right to turn her away. “Yeah, we can do that,” he says. “We have the right to be selective… We can do that. We’re private property. We have the right to do that.”

The video, along with Brooks’ account of the incident on her Facebook page, has prompted droves of supporters to admonish the restaurant on social media sites.

The news has spread quickly. One user posted the following review to Don Pollo’s Facebook page: “Civil Rights for all Americans, from your friends in Canada. I hope to hear that this bigoted dump goes out of business just like other bigoted establishments in the recent past!”

Brooks told Project Q she will not sue the bar over the incident. “I’m just spreading the word so everyone is aware,” she said.”I’m not seeking a lawsuit. Just awareness. Hopefully an apology and maybe they can be more sensitive to other girls like myself.”

Gay marriage is not legal in Georgia, and adult establishments that serve liquor can bar anyone from entering if they don’t have the proper identification.

      Please stop equating civil rights to the likes of this. While the gays may do get some hatred, they never had high powered hoses on them, dogs on them, or lynched. Establishments have the rights to deny service to anyone. If he a girl, why not go the legal right and change your license. Does the dude look like the girl at all?

      I’m a woman…a REAL, naturally born woman. If I walked up to an establishment and handed a bouncer an ID that states I’m a male, I’d probably turned around too. If HE (the tranny) is so a adamant about being acknowledge as a woman, then why not go thru the necessary legal and medical steps to make it official. Sure, HE may feel as though he has the appearance and mental disposition of a woman. He may even like the same things most women like–dyck. But he’s a man first and foremost. Malicious intent or not, the bouncer had ever right to deny HIM entry. If HE and HIS MALE companions(the “vocal fry” was a dead give away, real women don’t sound like that) have a problem with it, maybe they should open up their own bar. Smh, so sick of this gay agenda (population control) being shoved down our throats. I’m beginning to lose the little bit of respect I had for them. I can’t take any man seriously who willingly accepts a life of having to where butt plugs. The end.

      But the law is very clear on who can and cannot be around alcoholic beverages. If you cannot clearly identify who is coming into your establishment it’s safe to just say no.

      It should be illegal to post things like this unless they can be verified. I was happily married in 2009 and my husband didnt have a best friend. So, before you blast someoneor namname call maybe you should consider your source.

      For everyone hoping Ceaser from Black Ink would break up with Dutchess, it looks like your dreams have come true…

      It all played out on Twitter last night after Ceaser posted a cryptic Tweet about a bitch who called the cops on him followed Dutchess connecting the dots with her response.

      If you are a dude, and go somewhere dressed as a woman, wouldn’t that defeat the purpose of having a photo id?

      The militant gays have decided that ALL men who dress in women’s clothing are born females and therefore they are a protected species.

      So gay dudes really use stuff to loosen their butts.
      ——————————————————————-

      No the butt plugs are used so that they don’t do an number 2 on themselves. The area down there is so loose from unnatural entry that they lose their bowels easily. God made it tight like that for a reason, just like cigarettes make you cough, fire burns you, certain plants taste horrible raw–all these things, God did for a reason–because it’s just not healthy, physically or mentally. I’m trying to be as tactful as possible with this subject but the truth is just the truth.

      If HE (the tranny) is so a adamant about being acknowledge as a woman, then why not go thru the necessary legal and medical steps to make it official.

      Because most drag queens live their day-to-day lives as men. They just dress in drag for shows and such. This is why the gay agenda is so ridiculous. The majority of drag queens don’t want to have the surgery to be women. :no:
