Queer/sex worker

Angel Parker

Abstract


Queer/sex worker examines the manifold articulations of violence facing queer sex workers. It details the author’s dual personas, inside the workspace and out, and how contrary to popular opinion it isn’t the industry itself that provides the most violent experiences.  It is a call for solidarity, and a glimpse into experiences most people are not privy to. It details the author’s experiences of transphobia and how when looked at alongside the intercommunity experiences of violence they have received when discussing sex work, the lack of support is telling.  As sex workers, the author contends, we often speak alone in our own defence.
