Take Action: Hunters Nightclubs Creates Obstacle for Trans Folks

Hunters Nightclub in Chicago in an effort to crack down on prostitution is forcing clients to have their appearance match their legal identity on their photo ID. This new rule unfairly discriminates against many transgender people who either crossdress on occasion, or those who have not taken legal measures to change their gender status.

"Hunters Nightclub reluctantly imposed its new ID requirement because cross-dressing prostitutes were advertising on Craigslist and mentioning the establishment, said manager Peter Landorf.

They're implying they're coming here," said Landorf, whose new rule could cut down on his cross-dressing clientele. "If it is prostitution in any form, that could cost me my liquor license" (Chicago Tribune).
Call Hunters and let them know that you will not stand for discrimination against our transgender brothers and sisters and that an alternative solution is necessary to avoid banning certain clientele.
