Several Chicago gay bars announced Friday they will not be selling Anheuser-Busch beverages in response to the company disavowing transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney.
Sidetrack Bar, in Chicago’s Boystown neighborhood, posted a message to their Instagram account: “In response to actions and statements taken by Anheuser-Busch which strongly bring into question their support of the LGBTQ+ community, Sidetrack will cease selling Bud, Bud Light and 312.
“For 41 years Sidetrack has encouraged liquor and beer companies that have wished to garner the LGBTQ+ customer base to actively support our community. For many years, there were very few companies that were willing to risk this sort of exposure.
“We must hold brans accountable if they take active steps against LGBTQ+ equality, visibility, and safety.
“Bud Light’s recent decision to drop the Dylan Mulvany campaign, to put on ‘leave’ those who created it, as well as the statement by its CEO, wrongfully validates the position that is is acceptable to acquis to the demands of the whose who do not support the Trans Community and wish to erase LGBTQ+ visibility.
“Until Anheuser-Busch can clearly demonstrate that they will not acquiesce to the voice of hate that wishes to erase LGBTQ+ existence, Sidetrack will continue to boycott their products.”
2Bears Tavern Group joined the boycott.
They own 2Bears Tavern, The Sofo Tap, Meeting House Tavern, and Jackhammer. They said:
“In view of Anheuser-Busch InBev’s abandonment of its support of transgender activist Dylan Mulvaney, the subsequent reprehensible and divisive comments by its CEO, 2Bears Tavern Group is discontinuing all Anheuser-Busch InBev products including Busch Light, Bud Light, and Goose Island 312.”
