In April 2018, I had the privilege of partnering with the Cunt Collective in bringing to light the issues surrounding Bill S.1693. The experience was nothing short of eye-opening, and I hope everyone will take some time to do their research on the negative impact of this act. Stay tuned for a blog about the efforts of this group, and others that are actively working to prevent sex trafficking and protect victims, as well as the sex workers community that will be impacted by the acts of the senate--but for now, here's an excerpt and a link to the press release that I wrote on the event that was held on April 30th to protest the bill:
"In response to the recent passing of U.S. Senate Bill S.1693, the Cunt Collective presents Missed Connections: A Craigslist Cabaret, in support of the Sex Workers Project. The evening will feature devised works by sex workers and their allies, memorializing the now-defunct Missed Connections section of Craigslist. Hosted at the Museum of Sex, the event will take place on April 30 from 7-11 p.m.
The cabaret will honor its fallen namesake, the iconic personals section, through performance, party and protest. The event will also include raffles for artwork, luxury sex toys and other prizes, as well as a libation bar hosted by the Museum of Sex and free swag and discount vouchers donated by the museum and other sponsors of the event. All allies are welcome. Information will be distributed throughout the evening on the cause as well as on the Collective."
