The protesters gathered Wednesday on Liberty Avenue at the intersection of Smithfield Street. The group was organized by Pittsburgh’s LGBTQIA+ community of color.

They say bar owners discriminate against members of LGBTQIA+ community of color by setting a new dress code that bans things like hoodies, sunglasses and saggy pants.

They say they are made to feel unwelcomed.

The protest lasted about two hours.
