Raid At the Rainbow Lounge

Raid At the Rainbow Lounge

by

On the weekend of the 40th anniversary of Stonewall and Gay Pride events around the world, Texas police and alcohol agents  raided a Forth Worth gay bar, arresting seven people and sending one man to the hospital with a brain injury in an action one witness called "harassment, plain and simple." At a protest following the raid, bar owner J.R. Schrock dismissed as lies police claims that patrons made "sexually explicit movements" toward them.

“The groping of the police officer — really? We’re gay, but we’re not
dumb.”
