The Festival seeks to explore issues of intersectionality and the politics of gender, race, alternative sexuality and identity that function within sex work and sex worker rights movements, thus making partnered programming (and the festival in general!) relevant to as diverse a group as possible. Looking for presentations and workshops preferably with inclusion of all sex workers, those who work in the wide variety of ways including street based, informal sex work, survival based, webcam, dance clubs, massage, independent, dom, escort, and more... as well as workers who don’t fit into “mainstream” - accepted size, gender, race, sex and/or look, and trans- and male workers.
