Aussie nightclub: "Hold our spiked drink, cobber!"
An iconic nightclub will introduce hi-vis 'staring police' who will kick out revellers if they look longingly at a stranger across the dancefloor without prior 'verbal consent'.
Long-established venue Club 77 in the heart of Sydney's Darlinghurst party strip has overhauled its safety and harassment policy to make the venue a 'safe space' that promotes a strong culture of consent amid a crackdown against harassment.
The venue stresses interaction with strangers is encouraged but says engagement must now start with prior verbal consent or will otherwise be considered as harassment and will result in being evicted from the club.
What happened to you, Australia..? Where did you lose your way?
'We adopt a policy of 'always believe the report' in cases of harassment and feeling unsafe.'
We've all seen where that leads. Why can't you?
