Market Yard Pub asks Gays to Stay Away

Unfair: Bindumadhav Khire Unfair: Bindumadhav Khire
Break–up blues? Then, this party is meant for you. This weekend, Loop Lounge at Market Yard has organised a party, which invites singles who have broken up or are being two–timed by their spouses, to let their hair down.

But only if you are straight. The last line of the invite reads: “Sorry, no gays.”

Disappointment
Sandeep Dharma, CEO, Loop Lounge, said, “The party is for singles who have a broken heart. Break–ups are common among heterosexual couples and gay split–ups are rare. We are not looking forward to a guy–guy break–up party.”

Bindumadhav Khire, president of the Samapathik Trust, an NGO that supports gay rights, said, “I am very disappointed to know that society still discriminates.

Break–up is an emotional issue, whether a couple is straight or gay. The party should have been for everyone irrespective of their sexual orientation. Segregation is not good and community support is a must.”

Vishal Sable (name changed), a gay, said, “Even homosexuals are emotionally attached to their partners.

Despite the High Court's decision on Section 377, people have not accepted us. We still have a long way to go.”

The Invite
‘If you feel your boyfriend is two timing you, cheating on you or betraying you, then dump him rite away and get in to this happening party.’

If any of the two guys is not interested in each other anymore… then this is surely not a place for you to be… Sorry NO GAYS
