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 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), billie rain
(dual power infamy) Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore (Author of So Many Ways
To Sleep Badly), local writer and sex worker Sophia J. Russel 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 zine
by & for sex workers.
