UK: Gimp in the crowd is much ado about nothing, says Globe theatre

Source: news.yahoo.com 7/22/23 

The man wore head-to-toe latex with a face mask and leather harness
Shakespeare’s Globe allowed a man in a gimp outfit to roam the theatre while children were present and dismissed complaints because his sexual fetish latex bodysuit “did not contain offensive slogans”.

Theatregoers raised concerns that the man was wearing head-to-toe latex with a face mask and leather harness which was “a very scary sight” and put “parents in a very uncomfortable position”.

However, an internal staff report circulated by a manager later that day said that despite “a few comments from staff… our only worry was that the patron might’ve overheated”.

Very odd the person was not arrested as there are “anti-social” laws in the UK which can get you arrested for almost anything just because someone may feel “uncomfortable.” I recall reading about one guy was taking photos in public in the street and nearly got arrested just because of one call.

Then there is the former rock star, GG, who got busted in Vietnam, but had to register in the UK, and had broken no law involving that in the UK, and took his passport.

Then much later convicted him on a similar crime which was from 40+ years ago!
