Audrey, Her Dad and the Meat Market

I'm off to Montreal later this month for the Law and Society Conference and one bar I might encounter is Le Stud. The bar is the focus of a little piece in The Chronicle (a Montreal paper). The piece focuses upon one woman's campaign to have access to a gay bar. My favourite paragraph in the story reads:

'This is a place that promotes itself as a "manly meat market" where "men love men" and where TV screens display gay porn around the clock. THIS, Audrey, is where you decided to take your dad for a drink? You're fighting for your right to drink here, and dragging your dad along for the ride as well? Rosa Parks would be proud! '

In the UK the legal position is complicated by the ill-thought out Equality Act.
