Security at La Perla, a downtown bar in Los Angeles, aggressively forced out at least two transgender women and "several gay men," according to CBS.
Cellphone video of the incident shows Jennifer Bianchi, one of the women, repeatedly saying, "Don't touch me like that."
A friend of hers is shown being pulled off a chair and carried out the door.
"I think it was really wrong and humiliating," Bianchi says, "Hurtful."
The group at the bar was comprised of staff and volunteers from a local nonprofit, Bienestar Human Services who were there to support DTLA Proud, an annual two-day festival held in Pershing Square that celebrates the LGBTQ community.
