“Come join us all month to celebrate heterosexuals, for without them, none of us would be here!” the bar wrote.

The bar said that Mondays in June will be “Hetero Male Monday” wherein “any heterosexual male dressed like a heterosexual male” will be rewarded with a free beer on tap.

Wednesdays will be for couples, where “each heterosexual couple” will receive 15% off their bill.
