Euphoria star Hunter Schafer called out a German nightclub for anti-trans discrimination. On 28 May, the openly trans actress and her team attempted to attend the Sliq nightclub in Düsseldorf, Germany.
However, while trying to gain admittance into the venue, the club’s bouncer denied Schafer’s assistant entry due to her being trans.
Shortly after the incident, the young model took to her Instagram Live and shared with her followers about the transphobic encounter. “[He] said my friend could not come in because she is trans,” she said while addressing the unnamed bouncer. “You’re on live with 7 million people, by the way. “Don’t come to Silq.
It’s not safe for transgender people if you’re in Düsseldorf, Germany.” While trying to get the bouncer’s name, Schafer was greeted by a fan who asked if they could get a picture with her. “I’m actually very upset at this place right now because they’re transphobic… didn’t let my assistant in because she’s trans,” she replied.
