GUARDIAN NEWSPAPER LOOKING FOR SEX WORKERS WILLING TO HELP WITH A DOCUMENTARY…

I was contacted today by Diane Taylor from the Guardian Newspaper. They are looking for sex workers to take part in a documentary. Details below.

If anyone would like to be involved but would like to have ask advice from myself before replying feel free to drop me a line at douglasfox4@gmail.com

We are working on a documentary for the Guardian about sex work. We are looking at issues such as the impact on sex workers if proposals to criminalise clients who buy sex are implemented. We are also looking at draconian/problematic policing of sex work, increasing poverty such as benefit sanctions which put extra pressure on sex workers etc. We will be interviewing sex workers without revealing their identities or locations. There are many, vocal people who are engaged in the debate about sex work but very often the voices of sex workers themselves are absent from this debate. We hope to correct this imbalance by reflecting some of the diverse views that sex workers have about some of the above issues..

If you are interested in finding out more please contact me on 07966 145098 or at dianeltaylor@btconnect.com

Confidentiality is assured.

    Reblogged this on ss10cshc and commented:
    Ok…did the Rupert Everett one not working for the anti-sex work people? We presented evidence over and over for many years and yet they and the politicians still give no damn & shit about reconsidering their decisions on criminalization. What is the point of making these “documentary” over and over? It’s the public perception; the conspiracy of people who are anti-sex workers (just because of the trafficking victims); politicians who keep holding on the “traditional view” …

      I agree. But its a case of damned if you do and damned if you don’t. On a brighter note I actually do believe that things are ever so slightly starting to change as more and more is coming out about the abusive nature of the the so called rescue industry, and as more and more sex workers speak out positively about their work. Its a long process but you have to keep plugging away.

        I suppose you are right, I guess I was just frustrated with the difficulties for people to understand the problem of the anti-sexworkers and policies. Raising awareness is good yes, just not sure how to convince people that decrminalization will make many in win-win positions.
