Right to ban transgenders from clubs?

news.asiaone.com – By Sia Ling Xin

Club operators have a right to turn away anyone who wishes to enter their clubs as their premises are considered private, said lawyers who spoke to my paper.

Once let in, the guest should not be asked to leave on the basis of his or her gender as he or she has already paid the cover charge, said Mr Kelvin Lee, a director of Samuel Seow Law Corporation.

If the management insists that the guest must leave, he has the right to ask for a refund for his cover charge, said Mr Lee.
