Approval of a planned office complex and luxury apartments in the Tower Hamlets section of London, England, is contingent on revamping a bar to serve LGBT patrons for the next 12 years —and the mayor’s office will send an inspector to make sure it is “gay enough.”
Though this sounds like a story from the satirical Babylon Bee, this is no joke; the Brits are actually taking this very seriously. This is the first time that the sexual orientation of a venue’s customers has been included as a condition of planning approval. Apparently, in the past 10 years, London has lost 58 percent of its LGBT venues, and trying to open more LGBT-friendly venues is the city’s way of ensuring “diversity” and a growing economy.
