Comedy Festival Will Charge White Men More To Fight The Wage Gap

An upcoming comedy festival in New York City is charging different rates for attendees in an apparent effort to check the privilege of straight white men.


But the festival has one very notable policy: Currently, only women, non-whites and those who identify as LGBT are allowed to apply for an early-bird price of $19.25. Straight white men, on the other hand, will only be allowed to apply starting March 15, and they’ll have to pay $25 to do so.

Imagine the outrage if women and black people had to pay more for a service.
