Owner of Gay Bar Says Print Shop Owners Refused to Make Flyers for His Business
For Mike Reis, an unfinished space on Capitol Hill is the rough beginning of a dream come true—a gay bar that will be called Diesel. To advertise his new venture, Reis contacted Access Printed Media in Kent (WA) to do his flyers.
The next day, he received an e-mail from the company that stated: “My boss has decided that we won’t be able to print for your bar...advertising and promoting the kind of lifestyle that goes against our morals is something that he can’t bring himself to do.”
The owners of Access Printed Media call this an unfortunate misunderstanding.
