Melissa discusses her book Playing the Whore: The Work of Sex Work
Based on ten years of writing and reporting on the sex trade, and grounded in her experience as an organizer, advocate, and former sex worker, Playing the Whore dismantles pervasive myths about sex work, criticizes both conditions within the sex industry and its criminalization, and argues that separating sex work from the “legitimate” economy only harms those who perform sexual labor.

Join her in a discussion with Glasgow University Feminists at the Art School Bar from 7pm.

This event is free.
