Sandy v. Tempe Tavern (USA)


Briana Sandy, a Man who identifies as a Woman from Gilbert who was asked to leave a Tempe bar Saturday, filed an official complaint with the city of Tempe, Arizona Diversity Office. Sandy, 55, alleged he was discriminated against because of his gender identity by a bartender at the Tempe Tavern when he went in to drink a soda and watch the Belmont Stakes. The complaint is the first to be filed since the Tempe City Council approved and adopted an anti-discrimination ordinance in February 2014. The ordinance makes it illegal to discriminate against a person based on their gender, gender identity or sexual orientation, among several other characteristics.
