Click here (German) to find the complete version of §19 AGG.

Discrimination is defined in the AGG when entering a nightclub is denied to someone because of his/her ethnic origin, gender, religion, because of disability, age or sexual orientation. This kind of discrimination is called “direct discrimination”.

In most cases, bouncers do not explain why they deny entry and they sometimes conceal the actual reasons for their refusal.

A BUG brochure provides detailed information on how discrimination at the entrance of nightclubs can be recognized and on how people having faced such discrimination can handle the situation.
