The national spotlight is once again shining on the EXXXOTICA Expo as it gears up for its May 2016 return to Dallas, Texas. On Wednesday morning, the Mayor of Dallas, Mike Rawlings, and members of the Dallas City Council, met to ban EXXXXOTICA Dallas from using the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. Following opposition from various citizens and special interest groups pressing the local government to block EXXXOTICA’s return to the city, council members passed a resolution with a vote of 8 to 7 to ban EXXXOTICA’s return.
The producers of EXXXOTICA, through legal counsel, will file an injunction against this clearly unconstitutional ruling and are continuing with the planning of the event.
At the special meeting, ministers and citizens spoke out both for and against the expo’s return to the city-owned Dallas Convention Center with a resolution from Mayor Rawlings for the city-owned exhibit hall to not enter into contract with EXXXOTICA. Several council members supported allowing the show to go on, stating that after testimony from the management of the convention center, Dallas Police, Dallas Vice, and other city officials had reported no incidents during the show’s debut in the city last year.
Council members, both for and against the May 2016 show, also stated that on the advice from the city attorney, the show had the constitutional right to take place and there were not any legal reasons to disallow or block the event. All council members were advised that the city would most likely be sued by the producers of EXXXOTICA, costing taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not more, and that it would most likely lose.
“We absolutely have the right to produce the event at the convention center and the citizens of Dallas have a right to attend,” Said J. Handy, director of Three Expo, producers of the EXXXOTICA Expo. “And after today’s testimonies, we realize the City of Dallas understands those rights. It’s just unfortunate that their personal, religious and conservative beliefs compelled them to make decision which obviously violates the law.”
