Sex Workers' Art Show

The Sex Workers' Art Show Tour is coming to your town!

Straight up this is one of the most excellent, funny, brilliant, entertaining shows Ive ever been to it.  I go every year never miss it!

The show is an eye-popping evening of visual and performance art created by people who work in the sex industry to dispel the myth that they are anything short of artists, innovators, and geniuses!

The wildly successful cabaret-style show is hitting the road again, bringing audiences a blend of spoken word, music, drag, burlesque, and multimedia performance art. Intelligent and hot, disturbing and hilarious, the performances offer a wide range of perspectives on sex work, from celebration of prostitutes' rights and sex-positivity to views from the darker sides of the industry.

This year's incredible lineup of performers includes international burlesque sensation Miss Dirty Martini; award-winning author of the coming-out novel How I Learned to Snap Kirk Read; acclaimed Whitney Biennial artist Julie Atlas Muz; feminist smut purveyor and queer film star Amber Dawn; author of Happy Baby and My Girlfriend Comes to the City and Beats Me Up Stephen Elliott; stripper historian and burlesque professor Jo Weldon; member of the internationally renowned Japanese performance collective Dumb Type, Cono Snatch Zubobinskaya; enigmatic operatic musician Reginald Lamar;  filmmaker and performer Bridget Irish; and tour founder and ringmaster Annie Oakley.

The show includes people from all areas of the sex industry: strippers, prostitutes, dommes, film stars, phone sex  operators,  internet models, etc.  It smashes traditional stereotypes and moves beyond "positive" and "negative" into a fuller articulation of the complicated ways sex workers experience their jobs and their lives.  The  Sex Workers'  Art Show  entertains,  arouses,  and   amazes  while simultaneously offering  scathing  and   insightful  commentary on notions  of  class, race, gender, labor and sexuality!  Tour schedule below.
