GAY CLUB EXEMPTION
A homosexual sex club will be allowed to refuse entry to women & heterosexual men, under what is thought to be the first exemption of its type granted by the Attorney-General, Mr Shaw.
A spokeswoman for the Anti-Discrimination Board that said in advising the Attorney-General, it had taken into account the importance of a place where homosexual men felt safe ‘given the level of violence against homosexual males in the community’.
Bodyline Spa & Sauna has been a licensed sex-on-premises venue since 1991. The club also had reasonable procedures in place to ensure safe sex, she said.
