Shaka Talk S05E01 - SF Sex Worker Festival 2013

So much happened, I learned a lot & made so many new friends the week of the San Francisco Sex Worker Film and Art Festival, it's hard to share it all. Plus I'm a lazy whore. But the above episode of Shaka Talk gives an overall review of what happened. Special thanks to Carol "Scarlot Harlot" Leigh, Erica Fabulous and Laure McElroy.

Before I even get started...

I just got back from the San Francisco Sex Worker Film & Art Festival. While I decompress and decode everything I learned, I wanted to lead with this clip, which I seen right before I left for the festival. It's of San Francisco queen Honey Mahogany. At about the 1:30 mark, she answers a question in which she compares drag queens to porn stars, and how they're glorified & vilified in the queer community.

Ho Stage Zine #2 ~ images for mobile users

Some people have told us that they can't access the digital versions of our zines on their mobile devices, and have asked that we post images of the pages, to make them available to them. I hope these work. I checked them out on my phone, by clicking on each image, then enlarging them, they were legible. Thanks for asking, and here you go: Ho Stage Zine #2...

A Bout With Out

"Nothing About Us Without Us"



The video above was made by Sex Worker and Drug User Harm Reduction specialists, who are working for the health and safety of marginalized people, which in turn protects the public at large. Their message is simply stated: "Nothing About Us Without Us", meaning laws should not be enacted or enforced concerning anyone without that population's input, so their needs can best be met. Ignoring the voices of people you are purporting to help, is just forcing your agenda on them. Trusting and empowering them to make better choices is more effective than telling them what to do and how to live.
