‘A bouncer at a popular New York City restaurant ejected a lesbian customer from the bathroom after last month’s gay pride march because she looked too masculine, the woman charged Monday.
Khadijah Farmer, 27, said the incident happened June 24 at Caliente Cab Company on Seventh Avenue South, where she had gone with her girlfriend and another friend to have dinner after the march.
Farmer said she was using the women’s bathroom when a male bouncer burst in and banged on the stall door, saying a customer had complained that there was a man in the women’s room.
“I said, ‘I am a woman and I am where I am supposed to be,”‘ Farmer said. “I offered to show him some identification. I was told that’s neither here nor there.”‘
