What we do within our venues to create a LGBTQ+ safe space.
Current Safe Space Initiatives
Revenge & R-Bar are, first and foremost, safe spaces for the LGBTQ+ community and their friends.
A safe space is a space in which everyone feels welcome, respected, and comfortable with being who they are and where they can feel confident that they will not be exposed to; discrimination, criticism, harassment, or any other emotional or physical harm. Therefore, anyone disrespecting the space will be removed from the venue and incur barring.
