They demanded fair access after local Drag Queens were refused entry and three lesbian members of staff had been dismissed after only a day in the job. The bar was picketed again on 25th August. The bar was eventually taken to industrial tribunal and ordered to pay compensation to the dismissed bar staff. The picket was led by , one of the unfairly dismissed members of staff.
