Nightfairies and Radical Hustlers: Sex Workers as Activists
UnionDocs (322 Union Ave., Brooklyn)
7pm & 9:30pm
$9 donation, $15 double feature
Join the Sex Workers Outreach Project-NYC (SWOP-NYC) and Sex Workers Action New York (SWANK) as we celebrate International Sex Worker Rights Day by showcasing the fierce activism of sex workers in an exciting night of film.
Whether it is by taking to the streets in protest, delivering vital services to our fellow workers or simply reclaiming our stories and our lives, sex workers are transforming communities and having our voices heard.
We will begin the program with a diverse selection of short films that highlight the activism of sex workers in Africa, Asia, Europe, North America and here at home in NYC. Then we will focus our gaze on the actions of sex workers in India, a motherland of sex worker activism where March 3 events originated, with our feature length showing of Tales of the Nightfairies. This film explores the power of collective organizing and resistance of 60,000 sex workers in Calcutta. A panel discussion including filmmakers and sex worker activists is part of our action-packed event.
