Coffee Shop Gives Anti-LGBT Lawmakers A Taste Of Their Own Medicine

I don’t know if this is the right way to approach things or not, but I do know I wouldn’t have the guts to do this.

A North Dakota coffee shop is flipping the script on discrimination.

The Red Raven Espresso Parlor in Fargo recently posted a sign targeting state House members who voted down Senate Bill 2279, which would have protected the LGBT community from discrimination.

The sign read: “Ban effective immediately. The listed Men & Women are now banned from entering this establishment.* This is based solely on age, gender, race, beliefs, color, religion & disability.” Underneath was the annotation for the asterisk: “Unless accompanied by a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transexual, Queer, Intersex or Asexual person.”

The purpose of the notice was to send a message.

“So, while it is satire, I think it does make an immediate point” owner Joe Curry said, per KFGO. “A lot of us feel that discrimination is an old way of thinking that should be put aside.”
