Sex Worker Events

proVision Submissions Due 11 May

proVision, the Scarlet Alliance annual sex worker magazine, is looking for submissions for this year’s edition. The theme is “Seeing Red—What Makes Hookers Angry”, and the deadline is 11 May. We’re looking for articles, art, comics, cartoons, photos, poems, tales of woe, jokes, tweets, reviews, critiques, diary entries…if you created it and it fits the theme, then send it on through. If you’re stuck for ideas on what to write about, here’s a few for starters:

  • sex work and parenting
  • dating and sex work
  • "what other jobs have sex workers done?" – a comparison of sex work to other industries
  • censoring of sex work (ie hiding it from your work history)
  • internalised stigma/shame around being a sex worker
  • the police/policing of sex work
  • the treatment of sex workers in the media

The editorial committee will review all submissions to make the final decision on what will be accepted. Holly, the Communications Officer, is available for editing assistance, to help you come up with ideas, or to give suggestions on your work. Please check ideas with her before picking up your pens, to make sure there’s no doubling up and to make sure your ideas fit the bill:
