Amira Gray v. Bistro 18 (USA)


Lambda Legal filed a complaint in the Washington, D.C., Office of Human Rights on behalf of Amira Gray, a transgender woman who was given a restaurant receipt with an anti-LGBT slur printed on it.

In August 2013, while socializing with friends at Bistro 18, a hookah bar in Washington’s Adams Morgan neighborhood, Amira and her eight friends were repeatedly ignored by their server and had to approach the bar to order. During the evening, the server came to the party’s table only once to deliver the hookah machine the group had ordered at the bar. At the end of the night, the bartender dropped off the check, which had the words “GAY BITCHES” printed where the customer’s name would be written.
