Not so long ago Bigot asked me to join him as his partner to check out a new venue in town, which advertised itself as a " men only " gay bridge club. Despite not being that way inclined, curiousity got the better of me.
However, when we arrived outside , we were comletely put off by the wording on a large notice, firmly fixed to the front wall of a club house......which was, I might add, bizarrely painted in pink. The notice read :
" WOULD ALL GUESTS AND MEMBERS PLEASE USE THE REAR ENTRANCE "
Well, I ask you.............could a greeting be more brazen than that. Even Bigot had severe reservations about our entry. So not surprisingly we thought better of it, opting instead to turn around, get into the car, and to speed back to our regular club and favourite watering hole........a place where members are far less pushy. Indeed, we both heaved a huge sigh of relief as we came rushing in through the doors, with only seconds to spare to claim our seats.
