Its our Right to Strip

According to Strippers have launched a bare-all campaign hitting back again

st a council decision which they say undermines their ‘right to choose’ to strip.

Three weeks have passed since the Platinum Lounge was stripped of its sex establishment licence after opponents argued the surrounding neighbourhood had become more residential.

The campaign, featuring a naked woman holding placards reading ‘my body, my choice’, hits back againstcomments made in the Chronicle by long-term opponent Debbie Lomas – co-owner of the Rainforest shop on Watergate Row – that the council’s decision was a ‘good day for women’ after a long fight to reveal the ‘darker side of the industry’.

But now dancers at the club, on Bridge Street Row, are stripping off in protest against the ‘demeaning’ decision which many of the women say has left their livelihoods hanging in the balance.

But leader of the dancers’ campaign a 23-year-old who goes by the stage name of ‘Courtney’, said during four years working as a stripper the Chester club had been the ‘tamest, safest, strictest, cleanest’ and most ‘discreet’ on the circuit, insisting the women ‘hadn’t been hurting anyone’.

“We, as strippers, reserve the right to work without fear of judgement or prejudice and we will not stop fighting until we get what is ours. Our freedom and our right to choose.”
