Sex Party Launches Queer Beer
Sex Party Launches Queer Beer. The Australian Sex Party has launched a colourful brand of beer to confirm its support for marriage equality – with proceeds going to an organisation standing up for LGBTI rights in our region.
“Marriage equality isn’t here yet, but it will be soon,” says the Sex Party. “When that day comes, we'll toast the occasion with Queer Beer.
The beer brand was recently launched in Melbourne and will be available at a Poof Doof partys.
You can see where Queer Beer is available on their Facebook page.
Queer Beer profits will go directly to Kaleidoscope Australia, an organisation dedicated to advancing the human rights of LGBTI people throughout the Asia-Pacific Region. Kaleidoscope Australia has worked with the Sex Party on its LGBTIQ Asylum Seeker Policy.
“LGBTIQ people should be given priority status along with other oppressed minorities in Australia’s refugee program,” says the Sex Party’s Victorian Senate candidate Dr Meredith Doig.
“It’s completely unacceptable that our Federal Government will attempt to send people seeking refuge from persecution as a gay man or a lesbian to countries that might even kill them for their sexuality.”
Australia should ensure that a humane, efficient and socially beneficial system for responding to asylum seekers is put in place, she adds.
