Transgendered community plans protest at Hunters

Chicago, IL — Chicago's Transgendered community plans a protest of Hunters located in Elk Grove Village, over a door policy they consider discriminatory.  That according to writer Joe Erbentraut at the Chicagoist

An organized demonstration is planned for Friday, October 23, at 11 p.m. When the group plans to protest the bar dressed in drag and gender-variant gear. 

Earlier this year, the suburban gay bar gained media attention by instituting a door policy banning patrons whose ID photos do not match their gender presentation.

Hunters manager Peter Lansdorf says the bar is following the law.

Shame on them. Hunters has been turning into a shit hole over the past few years and this just may be the final nail to the coffin before they go down. Good luck to them on becoming a part of the trailer park they're located next to.
