Sex Worker Festival Director,
Erica Elena

Erica Elena, festival director, is an SF local, and a cis, femme, jew/witch and aspiring healer with dreams of a 24/7 whore's bath queer land project close enough to the city to be able to still go to the movies. She has been quietly organizing sex workers since the early 2000s, starting with an Oakland Whore’s Brunch, and has been co-producing the sex worker fest since 2003. She is an ex-street kid, aspiring healer and creator of the Whore’s Bath, which has been replicated nationally and internationally. She is inspired by the intersections of labor, gender, sexuality, moral panic and structural oppression that sex worker rights organizing addresses and looks forward to connecting, learning, and taking part in all the massive culture building that the festival brings.
