Sex Work in the Digital Age: Navigating Consent

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In the digital age, we all face problems that sex workers have been navigating for years: consent to being filmed, privacy on social media, online safety and censorship, to name a few. We will share ideas on how to maintain autonomy over our public image, avoiding spectacle, objectification and victimization. The goal of this session is to promote media allyship with marginalized groups so they can contribute to breaking up stigma rather than compounding it.
