WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita’s annual Midwest Winefest fundraiser will have to find a new wine distributor after its partner, Standard Beverage, pulled out of the event because organizers decided not to invite back certain bars and restaurants with LGBTQ clientele.

The liquor company took issue with a recent decision by the event’s organizer,  Guadalupe Clinic, to not invite businesses it deemed “morally and ethically” at odds with Catholic values.
