Well, I was totally thrown by my most recent experience at the Abbey while visiting from the very diverse Bay Area! We are in 2008 and I thought being gay was hard enough, but I guess being gay and African American is a problem for the management at the Abbey?..I was told to make sure I stop by the Abbey when I was in LA and to my surprise, I was unwanted! I come from a primarily White American neighborhood and have never been treated the way I was treated there. It goes without saying that I will NEVER patronize this establishment again and neither should you. We live in America?..
