Apparently, the Sydney city council has voted in favour of creating ‘homophobic free zones’ in certain districts of the Aussie city. Measures will be taken at in these distrcits including bars possibly losing late night trading privelages if they places do not adhere to being completely homophobic free. Interestingly enough, the only member of the council to vote against this idea was the only gay member of the city council calling the plan a gimmick. Does anyone else think this concept sounds a bit out there? Shouldn’t all districts of all cities be homophobic free? To me, this whole concept undermines the fact that gay men and women should be treated fairly wherever they go and perhaps could lead to further segregation.
