Well before the global pandemic hit, sex workers were organizing for their human rights in a society that has tried to keep them down. Five months ago, our pop-up exhibit showcased art by and for sex workers from around the world, in order to highlight their humanity and amplify their voices.
As Global Network of Sex Work Projects' Ruth Morgan Thomas says, “This exhibition is about showing our diversity, showing our realities, which are ones, as you can see...are amazing, proud individuals standing up as sex workers saying, ‘I'm human, look at me.’”
We're grateful to everyone who came to the exhibit, and to all of you who didn't get a chance but still proudly believe that sex work is work. Take a look back at the experience and the art, and hear from the organizers and activists who made it possible.
