Sex, Drugs & Politics - Fiona Patten

Amber heads inside Victoria’s iconic Parliament House, where she talks to MP FIONA PATTEN - the leader of the ‘Reason Party', formerly known as The Sex Party. The latter was a name she admits, was designed to get attention, which it did, and she now she has. These days it’s on a bigger scale than ever, since she became a member of the Victorian Upper House. But her policies have always been brave and for ‘reasons’ that always speak to the humanity of person, and not the judgement of their actions without looking at what lies beneath. Her recent victories on euthanasia and the opening of the first legal injecting room in Richmond, have left even Fiona, profoundly optimistic about the future of those society & state laws, have deemed as problematic outsiders.
