Danish gay bar bans straight couples from kissing... and immediately falls foul of human rights campaigner

I have to admit that I find this funny. A gay bar banning straight couple from kissing. The irony.

Divisive policy: Christian Carlsen, the owner of the Never Mind bar, has confirmed that he does not want heterosexuals kissing in his bar


A gar bar in Denmark has caused an uproar by banning heterosexual couples from kissing while visiting the premises.

The Never Mind bar, on the Norre Voldgade in Copenhagen, has confirmed that it does not allow hetrosexual displays of public affection, and will ask offending 'straights' to leave the bar if they pucker up.

The owner of the bar, Christian Carlsen, said the ruling was not aimed at discriminating against straight people - but protecting the gay clients.

The bar and its policy hit the headlines after bouncers told a party of guests to leave after a woman kissed her boyfriend.

Mr Carlsen stood by his policy, saying Copenhagen was rich with heterosexual bars for straight people to frequent, while the city's homosexuals had a more restricted choice.

Mr Carlsen wrote: 'It is important to the gay community that Never Mind is kept as a gay place. So it is therefore not allowed for heterosexuals to kiss and so on.'

Daily Mail


The irony of a gay bar banning straight people from kissing appears to have gone over the bar owners head.

Why go to a gay bar though if you are straight?

Personally, banning them from kissing in the gay bar, I do not disagree with.

Just go to a straight bar, and you can have all the kisses you want.

To meet your gay friends and have a drink?

That is the sensible thing to do. As long as gays don't mind getting banned from straight bars if they kiss.

You must admit though, it is funny that a gay bar bans straight people if they kiss. Obviously, the owner of the bar doesn't get irony.

No honestly, I have never felt the need to go to a gay bar. Maybe its just me, and other straight people often go to straight bars, I don't know.

What would I do there, if i am not gay or do not have gay friends.

If your straight, gay bars can be a good place to meet women, women like gay bars because they don't get hit on all the time by other men.

But if straight men then start going to the gay bars to hit on the woman, who is there to get away from men hitting on them, then eventually the woman will stop going there...

Also, just to add.

This is his bar, and he can make the rules as he sees fit. If he does not want straight kissing in his bar, then so be it.

In a sense I can understand his point of view, he wants to keep it pure for his gay clientele. Is it a wise move? Probably not.

On the other hand, the club got a lot of exposure now since the story broke. This type of publicity cannot be bought.

I think it is an absolutely fabulous idea - gays kissing in straight bars get kicked out and 86ed forever if not beat up by the homophobes.

Gays kissing in public usually means a lot of harassment by straights. Don't believe me! Try it and see what it gets you.

Even if you are two straights kissing for too long or too intimately in a public place can get you a lot of heck.

Sometimes even two gays kissing in gay bars can lead to being 86ed. Oh the Irony!

Fair enough, but shouldn't we practice what we preach?

WHY?

Where I live it is not uncommon for a "gay bar" to have straights try to take it over "BY" couples who come in and are seen kissing all night long to harass the gay clientele and hopefully make us leave. I have seen at least three gay bars have this problem and then closed or the gay people just let the straights move on in.

Only one gay bar in this area has made the statement on a placard at the front door - "GAY BAR - if you don't like it leave! Start a fight and get 86ed!" Although - the placard turned things around and now it is not unusual that the crowd is VERY mixed and gays are no longer harassed about being too friendly in this public bar.

In this way both straight and gay get along most of the time because it is known that if you are straight complaining about gay clientele you will be asked to leave and followed out the door.

If you are responsible (in the bouncer's opinion) of starting a violent event you will be 86ed and that includes both straight or gay people - violence in the bar is FORBIDDEN! Arguing in the bar is also forbidden - even when it is two lovers having a quarrel! The idea is if you got a beef take it outside and leave it there!

Wow, what a hypocryte that guy. After everything that gay people have been fighting for he makes a statement like this?

He actually suggests that his customers have a problem with a guy kissing a woman, what happened to live and let live?

They should be ashamed of themselves.

Do you feel threatened by hetero couples kissing? Why would anyone leave because of that?

I guess you and I just live in two very different parts of the world and I have never felt luckier.

And down here we feel pretty lucky.

Does this bar allow only gay men? If they allow homosexuals both male and female, will a gay man and a gay woman be kicked out if they kiss?

This sounds a little far fetched, so I have to say it... there's something rotten in Denmark.
