Thu 7 Nov 2019

Well the battle for the Botany electorate started this week, with the news former Air NZ boss Christoper Luxon will be the National Party’s candidate for the seat. He’s getting compared to John Key left right and centre, but as his first appearance on morning radio proved, he can make some mistakes. So, despite the media storm over Christopher Luxon, can Jami-Lee Ross hold his seat as an independent MP? Everyone of course remembers the public dispute between Ross and National leader Simon Bridges, over political donations that captured the country’s attention last year. Host Stewart Sowman-Lund spoke to Jami-Lee Ross this morning, and started by asking him if he can win.

When thinking of strip clubs, you may have a Hollywood portrayal in your head of beautiful, long haired feminine women and men binge drinking in dimly lit clubs. Bodyhaus is an organisation that is working to challenge that. Bodyhaus is a group of queer people that have launched a campaign to make a queer strip club event. The purpose of this event would be to make a space for queer strippers to perform safely in an industry that can often ‘other’ queer bodies and even in the best of circumstances miss the mark in making those who are gender diverse feel comfortable. One of the organisers and somatic sex educator, Sarita Das, joined producer Laura Kvigstad for a chat about strip clubs in Aotearoa, how queer bodies fit into that landscape and how Sarita would love to one day perform with leg and armpit hair. Laura started off by asking about what inspired Sarita and the other organisers to campaign for this event. 

The Pledgeme campaign has since ended however if you are interested in contributing to this event or finding out more you can reach out onFacebook or Instagram
