ACLU Declares War on Texas Honky Tonks Print E-mail

A Honky Tonk in Victoria, Tx. has a policy that forbids two men from doing the Boot-scootin Boogie together on their dance floor. Accordingly, GLAAD and the ACLU plan to sue them.

The Houston Chronicle reports that, "The American Civil Liberties Union of Texas is supporting a gay couple after the men said they were kicked out of a South Texas nightclub for dancing together to country music. The incident occurred Saturday night at a Victoria nightclub when Justin Meyer, 21, said he and his partner danced together to the country song "Cowboys and Angels," the Victoria Advocate reported."

James Douglas, 30, Meyer's gay lover, is quoted as saying that, "So, you're telling me it's ok to bump and grind my boyfriend to the song, 'Bubble Butt,' but we can't dance a two-step."

According to the Houston Chronicle, "The men said a manager approached them and told them Cactus Canyon had a policy barring two men from dancing together to country music. Meyer's partner, James Douglas, 30, said the manager told them they could dance together to rap or hip-hop music, but not country."

Cactus Canyon's director of operations, Robert Dillender, disclosed that the gay prancers at his bar were acting very disruptive.
