Action Alert: Caliente Cab Co.

My good friends over at the Queer Justice League are throwing a big action on Tuesday Oct. 16th at 5:30PM. Here's is the QJL's info (you can also click on the flier to the left):

Tuesday, October 16th at 5:30 pm, there will be a large community-wide picket on the sidewalk outside the Caliente Cab Company Mexican Cafe (located at the corner of Seventh Avenue and Bleecker Street). The restaurant ejected a lesbian patron.

Transgender Legal Defense (TLDEF) and GLOBE (Gay & Lesbian Outreach of Bushwick Empowered) as well as other allied organizations will be joining us in protest.
On Gay Pride Day, earlier this year, a lesbian was ejected from the establishment after a complaint that a man was in the women's restroom.
The fact that the original incident occurred on a day in which the NYC celebrates difference in an area known for its social tolerance, makes the offense all the more egregious and deserving of criticism."
