Adam Ant last week lent his image in support of The Drawn Petition, campaigning for policies that prioritise the human rights, safety and social inclusion of people working in the sex industry. Last night Noel Fielding was also drawn in support of their cause.

The campaign, spearheaded by London artist Natasha Gomperts, consists of 1000 five-minute portraits including Adam Ants and Noel Fieldings and will be exhibited from Monday 29 March – Sunday 4 April at The Gallery, Shepherd Market W1 connecting the inspiration for artists including French artists Edouard Manet, Picasso, Paul Gauguinย  and Spanish artist Francisco de Goya etc for thousands of years.

Members of the public are invited to visit The Gallery in the week of the exhibition, to add their face to the petition in support of those who have to keep their faces hidden from public view.

For more information on the exhibition and petition, visit the campaign website.

It is good to see Jacqui Smith’s husband won’t have to look far for his porn at the next election with Anna Arrowsmith, managing director of adult entertainment company Easy on the Eye Productions, standing as an MP for Gravesham.

As Sebastian Horsley said politics is “showiz for ugly people”ย  and politicians need to be more honest and less hypocritical about an industry that they benefit from.

“Only crime and the criminal, it is true, confront us with the perplexity of radical evil; but only the hypocrite is really rotten to the core.” Hannah Arendt
