Reporting from Atlanta — So this guy walks into a bar.
Wait, scratch that.
A woman walked into a bar Thursday night in St. Petersburg, Fla. Her name was Alex Borrego. It was ladies' night at the Bishop Tavern and Lounge, when ladies drink free. So Borrego and a friend ordered their free vodkas with cranberry juice, and sipped away.
Then, as the Tampa Bay Times reports, a bouncer told Borrego that ladies' night simply wasn't for her.
"You guys don't get to participate," the bouncer told Borrego, according to the report. "Because you're dudes."
Borrego, wrote reporter Dan Sullivan, was born male but has undergone hormone therapy and other "gender-change measures" to become a woman. She is listed as a woman on her driver's license. Her friend at the bar was a drag queen, according to the newspaper account.
Borrego was not pleased -- apparently, she and her friend had been welcomed into the bar by another bouncer, and told they qualified for ladies' night perks. Soon there was a boycott Bishop Tavern campaign on Facebook with 250 fans, and the bar owner, Dean Marshlack, issued what appeared to be a sincere apology.
