Australian Gay Party Apologizes for Racist, Sexist Rules

Via Poof, Facebook

Poof Doof, a gay event in Australia, has been under fire after a picture leaked of their rules for photographers. 

 Some of them include only taking pictures of men, muscular men with good skin in particular, and no photos of “indi boys,” a reference to indigenous people, according to the Advocate. Poof Doof’s organizers issued a statement via Facebook, apologizing for their policy, and saying they’ll change.

"If you have ever felt discrimination in our space, that’s not good enough and we are taking full responsibility to fix it," the apology said.

Though the manager of Poof Doof claims the guidelines haven’t been in practice for eight years, photographers have seen them as recent as 2014.
