Call for Straight Guests to Respect Our Space


Damian Kerlin writing in the long standing gay magazine Attitude encouraged heterosexual cisgender people who visit LGBTQIA+ clubs and pubs to “check their privilege” and remember that they are guests. Mr Kerlin says “When straight people come into our spaces, they bring the outside world with them. This means we go back to monitoring the way we behave in the very spaces which are meant to be ours. Putting it politely, straights, you are a guest. There are cultural zones for certain demographics that are intentionally exclusionary, not out of hate, fear, or prejudice, but because everyone deserves space. You must respect it. If you don’t like this, go somewhere else. You have more options. Queer people don’t have that.”
