Brooke Candy assaulted at Family Bar

From GayNZ Team, 9 December 2018

US rap queen Brooke Candy was assaulted by a staff member during her performance at Family Bar.

Candy was punched in the face while DJing in the Downunder bar by the resident Downunder DJ.

This is not the only occurrence of performances in Family that have felt unsafe in what should be a safe space for the LGBTI+ community.

There are concerns that staff at Family Bar are not listening to the community when complaints are made by the LGBTI+ people. A number of complaints in regards to sexual assaults, harassment and homophobic patrons over the past years that have been brought to the attention of Family Bar, but Family Bar seems to be doing nothing to solve these issues.

GayNZ has approached Family Bar for comments
