After reporting that a bias attack took place over the weekend at a bar located inside YOTEL New York, GaySocialites.com spoke exclusively with a representative authorized to speak on behalf of the hotel who said his organization is committed to supporting the LGBT community, especially considering that many members of his organization fit into that demographic.
Although Geoffrey Mills, Yotel’s Managing Director, wasn’t present when the incident occurred, he was briefed on the sequence of events by reviewing the surveillance video shot on cameras placed throughout the bar and taking testimony from staff members working that night. He also said he has been in contact with those involved in the incident to gather their side of the story and regain their loyalty as customers.
Mills, however, admits the incident didn’t exactly unfold without flaws.
“I think mistakes were made by several people,” he said.
