PENNSYLVANIA MISCELLANEOUS MOTORCYCLE LAWS
PENNSYLVANIA: DISCRIMINATION ON THE BASIS OF CLOTHING OR CLUB MEMBERSHIP IS ILLEGAL
The Pennsylvania Human Relations Act, 43 Pa C. S. õ951, et seq. provides that "It shall be an unlawful discriminatory practice for any place of public accommodation to refuse or deny to any person because of his race, color, sex, religious creed, ancestry, [or] national origin any of the accommodations, facilities or privileges of such place of public accommodation or to display or post and notice that any of the accommodations, facilities and privileges of any such place shall be refused or denied on account of race, color, religious creed, sex, ancestry, [or] national origin." Any person whose exercise or enjoyment of rights secured by the Constitution or laws of the United States has been interfered with, or attempted to be interfered with may institute and prosecute a civil action for injunctive and other appropriate equitable relief, including the award of compensatory monetary damages.
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the case of Cohen v. California, 403 U.S. 15 (1971) that individuals have the constitutional right under the First Amendment to wear clothing which displays writing or designs. The United States Supreme Court has long recognized and protected the right of an individual to freedom of association. Thus, a person's right to wear the clothing of his choice, as well as his right to belong to any club or organization of his choice is constitutionally protected; persons or establishments who discriminate on the basis of clothing or club membership are subject to lawsuit.
