Jay Graber, who identifies as transgender and uses the pronouns “they” and “them,” said they were turned away because they wore a dress while trying to get into PRYSM, 1543 N. Kingsbury Ave., on Dec. 30.
[An] employee “told us ‘there was no way in h— he would be letting a dude in a dress into his nightclub,'” Graber said. The employee also said Graber “didn’t fit the dress code,” Graber said.
PRISM Nightclub is located across from a Whole Foods Market store on Kingsbury, just south of North Avenue.
