[2] Scottish Highlands’ First Lap Dancing Club Earns the Ire of the Free Church of Scotland

A 24 July 2013 The Scotsman article by Alistair Munro titled “Highlands’ First Lap Dancing Club Sparks Outrage” reports that the first lap dancing club in the Scottish Highlands opens today, 24 July 2013, in Inverness, Scotland, and has earned the ire of the Free Church of Scotland (FCS).

An FCS spokesman is quoted as saying:

“We are hugely disappointed and saddened that the first lap dancing club in the Highlands will be opening.

“Over recent weeks a number of our members have been dismayed at the news – and local ministers have heard particularly from young families who are already deeply concerned about the accessibility of sexually suggestive material to children and young people.

“Bringing a lap dancing club to one of the busiest streets in Inverness will make this worse not better.

“Lap dancing sends out a very clear message that women are to be stared at like animals in a zoo.

“We cannot believe in modern 21st century Scotland that there is not universal opposition to such a demeaning and exploitative form of ‘entertainment’.”

[4] Plaque Commemorating 19th Century Cross Dressing Act Unveiled at United Reformed Church in London

A 25 July 2013 article in the Camden New Journal by Alice Hutton titled “Blue Plaque Recognition for ‘Illegal’ Cross-Dressing Double Act ‘Stella and Fanny’” reports that on 17 July 2013, a plaque honoring Ernest Boulton and Frederick Park, “…better known by their stage names Stella and Fanny….a Victorian cross-dressing double act who suffered national persecution 150 years ago” was unveiled on the outside wall of the Bloomsbury United Reformed Church, the building then in which Stella and Fanny lived.

The pair was put on trial in 1870 for committing “felonious crimes” and “outraging decency”, but was later acquitted.

Joining the celebration was the mayor of Camden Jonathan Simpson, other supporters including those from Gay’s the Word, London’s oldest LGBT bookshop, and Neil McKenna, author of a biography of the two performers.

Pastor of the church the Rev. Roberta Rominger said: “They were flouting the law, because in those days who could imagine that the law would ever change and be how it is today?

“It is really out of that that this plaque needs to be here and we need to know.”
