It was great to join protesters outside the 'Adult Industry' (aka porn) Awards on Tues night at Leicester Square.
A surprising number of people, including many men, came up to us to find out what was going on and where genuinely supportive of our concerns.
The fact that the awards had categories like 'MILF' and 'GILF' of The Year rather helped make the case for us (i.e. 'Mother I'd Like to F***' and 'Grandmother I'd Like to F***')read more..
Join us This Thursday to protest against yet another Porn Awards Ceremony.
This time it's the 'Paul Raymond' Awards (Raymond was yet another billionaire pornographer and the UK's first strip club operator).
And it's hosted by the delightful Dapper Laughs (you remember the 'comedian' who was pulled from TV because of his rape jokes, songs like 'Proper Moist' and his 'dating advice' that incited sexual harassment. He even managed to demean the homeless on the way).
And who said porn was sexist!
