A TOOWOOMBA nightclub has apologised after a DJ booked to play a gig on Saturday night repeatedly called patrons "faggots" over the microphone system.

Numerous people took to the Society, formerly Agenda, Facebook page to vent their frustration at the alleged homophobic slurs, with one contacting The Chronicle stating she was "disgusted" at the events on the weekend.

"Myself and others witnessed the house DJ J-Dub use the homophobic slur 'faggot' over the microphone three times, once as an insult in response to a fight that had broken out on the dance floor and the other to what I can only assume (was) to get a rise out of the crowd," Indi Davis said.

"I'm disgusted that the LGBTQI community are facing this kind of discrimination no more than a week after receiving legal equality on such a public platform."

Other Facebook users left posts on Society's Facebook page detailing the slurs.

"Wow just left Society...because their DJ just stopped the music to call someone a faggot three times," Richie Swindler wrote.

J-Dub, whose full name is Jake Wiemers, was contacted for comment but did not respond.
