Trending: A fight for the (civil) right to party
The Abbey is a gay nightclub in West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and a popular destination for hen parties who descend on the bar every weekend. However, its owner, David Cooley, has decided to tackle anti gay-marriage legislation in a wonderfully devious manner – by banning all "bachelorettes" until marriage is legal for same-sex couples.
"Every Friday and Saturday night, we're flooded with requests from straight girls in penis hats who want to ogle our gogos, dance with the gays and celebrate their pending nuptials," said Cooley in a statement. "They are completely unaware that the people around them are legally prohibited from getting married," thanks to 2008's infamous Proposition 8. Cooley stressed that women were still welcome at the club, just not hen parties, before going on to encourage other gay-owned establishments to follow suit as a sign of solidarity. But, with Barack Obama offering his support for gay marriage earlier this month, perhaps the hens won't be shut out for too long .
