Mardi Gras Fair Day 20 February 2011 Victoria Park Sydney

MGFD1Mardi Gras turned on another fabulous Fair Day with the Sydney summer weather adding to the hot and sticky atmosphere. The Sex Party was out in force promoting and supporting LGBTIQ rights plus our unique brand of progressive politics. Candidate for the seat of Sydney Andrew Patterson was pressing the flesh for his NSW campaign along with Huw Campbell for his shot at the upper house.

Fair Day is so important on the Sex Party calendar as it enables us to beat the drum on equal rights, other LGBTIQ issues and connect with people who we believe make up a core constituency for the Party. With NSW more than likely to have a change of government and heading into a long era of conservative politics after polling day on 26th March it is vital to keep a keen focus on our and your issues. The increased influence of religion in politics is just one scary possible outcome of the NSW election and should be of concern to all civil libertarians.

It wasn’t all campaigning with our free sex toy raffles, temporary tattoos, penis wands, stickers and more adding to all the fun of the fair. Congratulations to Leanne Waldron for winning the raffle for the gals’ box of toys and to Jeff Hamilton for taking home the boys’ box. There are hours of pleasure awaiting the lucky winners and their friends. Ouch! A special thankyou to leading adult industry wholesaler Calvista Australia for donating the raffle goodies.

Of course we just can’t be at Fair Day without the fantastic support of our members and our volunteers who put in long, hot hours giving out flyers and tattooing bodies with our Vote 1 Sex message. A super-sized thankyou goes out to all of you. We hope to see you again real soon, helping out on the NSW election campaign.

Sex Party Releases Upper House Candidates: Balance of Power Now Possible

ASP Candidates

The Australian Sex Party has announced candidates for the Victorian Upper House election in November. For the first time, every Victorian who is eligible to vote will now be able to vote for the Sex Party. Party President, Fiona Patten, said the party is standing candidates in every upper house region with the expectation that it has a chance of getting as many as four candidates elected to the Legislative Council and possibly with balance of power.

“As a truly non-aligned party who owes nothing to Labor, Liberal or the Greens, we are ideally placed to hold the balance of power,” she said. “We are a sensible and thoroughly modern political party that can offer Victorians the chance to see long-overdue social reforms put into place”.
