“The Best Parliaments Are Hung!” Greens Politician Stephen Bates Buys Ads On Grindr

Greens Politician Stephen Bates has caught the attention of the internet because he has placed ads on the lgbtqia+ hook-up/dating app Grindr – we love to see it!

One of the taglines for the ads reads, “The best parliaments are hung!” Which honestly is genius and is definitely playing to the right audience.

Other taglines include, “Spice up Canberra with a third” and “You always come first with The Greens!” It’s fun, clever and definitely bold.

Bates clearly has a sense of humour and his Twitter is a reflection of his jokes and now his ads on Grindr are!

It’s actually quite cool for a politician’s political campaign to be reflective of their personality as well as their ideology.

Bates told Pedestrian, “I’m gay myself and I know Grindr itself plays a huge role in the queer community if it’s for relationships or just meeting other people who are like you and knowing that there are other people like you out there.

“As weird as it will sound to any gay person [hearing] this, it is a big place of community where a lot of people do come together.”

Let’s face it Clive Palmer may spend the most money but clearly, Bates is having the most fun.
