60. But we ARE talking about events. Not people.
If a group of straight girls show up to drink and socialize and hang out, that's fine. There's no problem at all. If a group of straight girls show up with bachelorette party paraphernalia and wish to have their party at the bar, then the answer is NO.

Every private business has the right to restrict what events can occur at their place of business, so long as they are not discriminating against individuals who are members of a protected class.

A straight bar wouldn't have to permit a throng of drag queens to put on an impromptu drag show event in their bar, either. All bars (gay or straight) can ban birthday parties, too.

It's the EVENT that is the problem--not the people.
