Houston strippers forced to wear IDs
Independent Online |
"Exotic dancers in Houston, Texas, will have to display an official identity card while performing, even if that is the only item on their otherwise naked bodies... the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans reversed its earlier ruling and upheld the city's requirement that dancers 'wear and conspicuously display a city-issued identification card while performing.' ... strippers and club owners say that no other business sectors are singled out for such treatment and that the move is nothing more than harassment by conservative leaders. Complying with the law could also put dancers in danger, since they will have to display their real names, rather than the stage names which afford them a layer of anonymity."
