Lesbian Couple Gets An Apology and Free Drinks After Being Booted From Arizona Restaurant
By Eric Pfeiffer
Kenyata White and Aeimee Diaz were celebrating their anniversary at the American Kitchen & Wine Bar in downtown Phoenix this week when they were suddenly asked to leave the restaurant for "inappropriate behavior." But after an uproar on Facebook and other social media sites, the lesbian couple has been welcomed back with open arms -- and free drinks.
The Arizona Republic reports that the couple was asked to leave the restaurant, which is in the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Hotel, after the two women were seen hugging and kissing at their table. A manager approached them to tell them their behavior was "inappropriate," and making other customers "uncomfortable."

that is perfect!
>>I would feel very uncomfortable seeing that...actually, if two heteros were at it, I wouldn’t like it either....
And there is the crux of the issue right there. PDAs, public displays of affection. A lot of gays really like their PDAs, I don’t know if it is an overt “in your face” thing or what.
We have season tickets for concerts at a local amphitheater. You to to a regular show, say someone like Kenny Loggins, and nothing. But go to, say, a Melissa Etheridge show, and the gays are out in force and the PDAs make the place look like a queer unchaperoned middle school dance.
But if someone in management at this restaurant comments about it and asks them to calm it down, people get all upset.
I remember the sign outside the old card parlor ...
"Liquor in the front, Poker in the rear."
This is an odd one. This restaurant is in the downtown urban hipster ‘cultural district’ of Phoenix that you would normally expect to be lezz-friendly.
