Join us for a thought-provoking film screening featuring two documentaries that shed light on the lives of sex workers and their families. These films challenge stereotypes and stigma while highlighting the resilience and importance of sex worker families.
The first installment, titled "Sex(ual) Healing," features stories from individuals of diverse gender and cultural backgrounds in the sex work industry. They discuss the potential benefits of decriminalization, such as increased empowerment, connection, and healing. The documentary sheds light on the lack of protections for sex workers, particularly BIPOC trans and queer individuals, leading to violation, discrimination, and mental health challenges.
"Family Matters" offers insight from the families of sex workers, inviting viewers to explore the intricate interplay between love, acceptance, and societal dynamics. It confronts the hurdles sex workers encounter, including societal judgment, isolation, and the repercussions on their relationships and parenting.
The Sex Workers Project provides client-centered legal and social services to individuals who engage in sex work, regardless of whether they do so by choice, circumstance, or coercion. As a national organization that defends the human rights of sex workers by destigmatizing and decriminalizing people in the sex trades, SWP aims to create a sexually liberated world where all workers have the autonomy and power to fully enjoy their human rights. https://swp.urbanjustice.org/
