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.

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