Gay bar bans bachelorette parties

Brooke talks with David Cooley, the owner of a gay bar in West Hollywood, who has banned bachelorette parties from his club.  He says that while he's happy for the brides-to-be, he decided to ban the parties in the belief that it's hurtful; not everyone can have that same type of celebration. He tells Brooke that he hopes other bar and club owners will take a stand for same-sex marriage and ban these parties until everyone has the same rights.
