UPCOMING LIVE EVENT
From I Was A Teenage Dominatrix to The Happy Hooker, classic sex work books have been limited to pretty one-dimensional points of view. In the 21st century, sex work books are as prismatic as the workers themselves. Join sex work journalist and podcaster Tina Horn for a panel on the exciting and nuanced ways sex work is being written about right now. Learn how strippers around the world represent themselves, on topics ranging from snacks to the male ego, in Jacq the Stripper‘s crowdfunded self published Striptastic. Learn why Aya de Leon chose escort characters as the protagonists of her Justice Hustlers crime series. Learn how Akynos uses both her blogging and performance art as activism. We’ll be discussing everything from stigma to genre to branding to high heels in an effort to create a real and honest portrait of the modern literary sex worker.
The Strand Bookstore, 828 Broadway, New York
Thursday February 8th
7:00PM – 8:00PM
In this now-classic work Sarah Schulman beautifully captured the lesbian subculture in 1980s New York. Her noir-style novel of heartbreak follows a no-nonsense coffee-shop waitress whose girlfriend has just left her. In her attempts to find love again, the heroine traverses several hilarious, sexy, and even violent paths through the underground clubs and back alleys of the Lower East Side. After Delores is a fast-paced, sharp, poignant, and insightful.
Join us as Sarah Schulman discusses her landmark work and its influence with Moira Donegan, Tina Horn, Kay Gabriel and moderator Davey Davis.
