A memo from Bristol town solicitors advises against amending the definition of “adult entertainment,” according to a recent filing. Resident Robert Botelho filed a petition last month requesting that the language of the definition be broadened to include forms of entertainment with or without music by dancing or mimicking sexual action or seduction. ACLU Executive Director Steven Brown wrote that the proposed language is “inappropriately aimed at LGBTQ+ individuals” and warned against the “Footloose-ian effect” it could have. While the decision is ultimately left up to the council, solicitors advise against the proposed change. The council meets on Wednesday to discuss the matter.
