Alopecia sufferer shunned for his hat

A bald pub punter was thrown out of a pub for hiding his head underneath a baseball cap.

Father Lee Adams had to leave the Blake Pub in Finsbury, London because he was wearing a hat that pub owners said covered his face; meaning it was not visible by CCTV cameras.  

The news underlines the problems that Alopecia sufferers face when trying to conceal something that they feel to be self-conscious. Other ailments are often treated with more respect and there needs to be more awareness for what this feels like for someone with the illness.
