LET’S DO IT! – a night of sex worker made media

This showed up in my in-box and sounded interested, so I thought I’d pass it along. I’m told that they’re looking for a few more short films, preferably narrative/experimental that have been made by sex workers about sex work. Feel free to get in touch with them directly at birdcagecollective@gmail.com.

LET’S DO IT! – a night of sex worker made media

Panel discussion

Special guests in attendance

From the Sangli district in the rural south of India to the life of a New York City callboy, sex workers reach out through film and video to share their myriad of experiences. LET’S DO IT! a night of experimental and documentary shorts dedicated to human rights and advocacy for sex workers across the globe. As misrepresentations of those who trade erotic labor proliferate the mainstream media, sex workers and sex worker activists help to reduce stigmatization by becoming their own authors, reporters, and organizers. The evening’s films will examine the unique challenges and joys of being a sex worker. Following the screening will be a panel discussion with past and present sex workers whose experience varies from peep show work, fetish & fantasy to erotic massage and more. Miss Indigo Blue (Academy of Burlesque), Annie Oakley (Sex Workers’ Art Show), Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore (Author of So Many Ways To Sleep Badly) and other special guests will be in attendance. Please join us to discuss individual experiences with advocacy, work and empowerment. There will be a reception with beverages, a DJ, food and copies of $pread magazines for donation, all to raise funds for a local resource guide by & for sex workers.
