by Newsdesk | 18th April 2014

Business partners Duane Southall and Paul Wells are opening a new club called Cloud Nine in St. Mary's Road in the city centre of Southampton tonight (18th Aprl)

The new club is on the grounds where student club Kaos used to be.

Speaking to the Daily Echo, Duane said:

'Southampton has been crying out for another gay night club for years.

'We’re right in front of the Royal South Hants Hospital and opposite where the British Gas building stood. Hopefully this will put Southampton back on the country’s gay network.

'I’m already looking for another venue for a gay bar in the city. Duane approach-ed me about opening up a new gay venue and we thought it would be very worthwhile. The pink pound is quite powerful so it should be successful.'

Two women were asked to leave one of the fast food chain's locations yesterday, after a customer complained.

by Newsdesk | 18th April 2014

We reported yesterday that a father had taken to Twitter to complain to KFC that his daughter and girlfriend had been thrown out of the KFC restaurant in Bath after a customer made a complaint about the couple.

TheGayUK did reach out to the PR Team of KFC but have yet to hear anything back, however speaking to the Independent a spokesperson for the company said:

'Very sorry for any offence caused'.

The spokesperson continued: 'While we acknowledge that staff may have been over-zealous in asking the couple to leave, we do not believe that the decision had anything to do with their sexuality.

'Staff acted in response to complaints from customers about inappropriate behaviour, however they have since apologised, in person, to the couple, and offered them vouchers as a form of apology, so we hope to welcome them into the store again soon.'

Stephen Pope who originally made the complaint said that the police were now involved.
