Don Pollo Bar & Grill, Atlanta and @AlissahBrooks (USA)

Atlanta drag performer Alissah Brooks says he was denied entry by a Buford Highway restaurant early on Friday for being transgender when he and two friends tried to dine there. The friends, drag performers Mariah Paris Balenciaga and Y’Marie Santiago, confronted the security team and manager (captured on video) who they say wouldn’t allow Brooks into Don Pollo Bar & Grill.

Georgia does not ban discrimination based on gender identity or sexual orientation. The City of Atlanta does, however, and we encourage Brooks to file a complaint with the City of Atlanta Human Relations Commission.
