Adult Shop Owner Calls on Katter to Support Sex Party on Censorship
One of Queensland's best known adult shop brands, Be Daring, has welcomed the formation of the Australian Sex Party in Queensland in readiness for the next state election.
Be Daring's managing director, Keith Boswell, said that the Sex Party platform was one of the most progressive for small business of any party in Australian politics. "The Sex Party has its origins in small business and they are committed to getting rid of red tape that small business owners have to deal with", he said.
Mr Boswell said that adult shops in Queensland wanted to be treated by the state government in the same way as other small businesses. "We want to have legal Restricted Premises status so we can evict minors like adult shops do in all other states of Australia", he said. "We want to be able to sell non violent erotic media the same as other states do and not be branded as perverts and pariahs in Queensland".
He said that adult shops wanted to be licensed in Qld and not have to suffer the indignity of raids by the Office of Fair Trading all the time. "The Sex Party is the only party that I can see that grants these freedoms to responsible traders through their policy suite and I welcome them here in Queensland".
He threw out a challenge to Bob Katter's recently formed Australia Party who have championed themselves on the personal freedoms to fish anywhere and to own guns. "If Bob Katter is a true civil libertarian who supports people's rights to free speech and action, then he will validate the Sex Party's call to legalise the sale of adult material in Queensland. I hope he rises to the occasion".
The Queensland Launch of the Australian Sex Party will be held at the Secret Door Playhouse 12 Avian Street Kunda Park 6pm – 7.30pm Tuesday 14 June 2011. The party will actively campaign at the next Queensland State Election and is currently seeking to field candidates across the State
