An incredible incident took place in a nightclub in Limassol.
According to a post by Accept - LGBTI Cyprus, a gay couple was expelled on Saturday night from a club in Limassol, because of a kiss.
As the post states, in a phone call they had with the store, they were informed that kissing is only allowed by straight people.
Accept - LGBTI Cyprus even urged those who are faced with such cases to report to the Commissioner for Administration and Protection of Human Rights.
Yesterday we were informed that a gay couple was kicked out of RetroClub Metropole because of a kiss. In a telephone conversation we had with the club, we were informed that straight kisses are allowed.
Such an incident of clear discrimination is not the 1st that has come to our hands. Mainly the club in question and other entertainment centers and private businesses are homotransphobic.
On the occasion of this incident, we would like to inform our people that in such cases, where there is no violence, they should contact the Cyprus Ombudsman, where according to the Sexual Orientation Discrimination Act (2004), must check.
At the same time, we urge the people of our community to avoid such places with a history of homotransphobia and to prefer lgbtq friendly places of entertainment and hospitality.
