A women's health company is campaigning to get a 19ft giant vagina-shaped inflatable admitted to the Edinburgh Fringe. Elvie claims it was "banned" from taking part in the festival over to concerns about its pop-up stall on the Royal Mile which featured a representation of a vagina. The company, which sells products including a pelvic floor strengthener, is leading a campaign to help get the inflatable into the festival using the hashtag LetFannyFly as well as an online petition. Elvie said plans for a blimp to be tethered in Festival Square were also scuppered by the local council. The blimp was designed to raise awareness of pelvic floor weakness, which can lead to incontinence, Elvie's fouder said. Founder and chief executive Tania Boler said: "The fact that our campaign has been banned because it involves a part of a woman's anatomy shows that taboos around women's health still run deep in our society.
Elvie petitions to #LetFannyFly after Edinburgh Fringe grounds vagina blimp
19ft vagina blimp banned from Edinburgh Fringe Festival sparking ‘Let Fanny Fly’ campaign – The Sun
The company behind it says 'vaginas are nothing to be ashamed of, half of us have them'. A foot-long blimp designed to look like a vagina, which was to be used in a campaign from a woman's health company, has been banned from its location on the Royal Mile at the Edinburgh Fringe. A petition has been set up to "let fanny fly" after the campaign was ruled "not suitable" to appear on the High Street. As well as the blimp, Elvie wanted to set up a stall with a vagina design on the front at the festival in order to raise awareness of pelvic floor health. The blimp is now parked in a field half an hour outside of Edinburgh, and Elvie are keen to see it fly over the city. Yet, there is a cloak of silence shrouding this topic. Our mission is to help all women laugh freely and fully without the fear of embarrassment.
This 19ft Vagina Blimp Won't Be Flying Over Edinburgh Fringe's Royal Mile – Here's Why
Edinburgh City Council and Edinburgh Fringe Festival organisers have come under fire for claims they banned the use of a vagina illustration and vagina blimp in the Scottish city. However, founder and CEO of the brand, Tania Boler, claims festival organisers banned the use of the illustration. This was followed by a decision from the city council to then ban the use of a 19ft vagina blimp that Elvie planned to fly in the same spot. Elvie has now started a petition urging the council to LetFannyFly and the blimp is currently flying on a farm just outside the city. If this was another health condition, it would be considered an epidemic and the subject of activism across the country and the world.
