THE Mandaue City Government is investigating a club in the city for allegedly discriminating against a transwoman guest. The establishment reportedly refused entry to a transgender individual unless she paid for the use of a VIP table. VIP tables in clubs provide guests with a reserved area and a dedicated server for orders, typically at a higher cost than regular reservations. Mandaue City Treasurer Regal Oliva, in an interview, on Friday, Feb. 23, 2024, said a show-cause order (SCO) will be issued against the establishment to get their side of the story. An SCO is a court order directing an accused party in a lawsuit to explain or justify why a certain action should not be put into effect by the court.
