Public Sex and Bristol Downs

Thanks to Mark for flagging up this really interesting story on the BBC website. According to the BBC, plans to clear scrub on Bristol Downs has run into a little complication in the form of men having sex there. The City Council's LGB group has apparently raised concerns that the action of clearing the scrub may be discriminating against gay and bisexual men. The council seems to be taking a sensitive approach, drafting in THT to advise but they are still pushing ahead. The remarkable aspect of the story is an LGB group actually stepping up to defend men who engage in public sex -an exceptionally rare act, and as someone whose research is primarily into public sex and the law, I consider it a welcome move. The group isn't named in the story but well done to them. A move that I'm sure won them few friends.
