The owners of an Austin bar that used to cater to an LGBT clientele now has a new owner that reportedly has started turning away non-straight patrons.

The Red Room changed ownership last week, and since then, the new owners have advised the staff that the bar will no longer be deemed a gay bar, according to former Red Room bartender Josh Moon. Gay patrons were then asked to leave on Friday night, the first night of operation under new ownership, KVUE News reports.
