Dancers: Squeak with Dallas and Jolene
Exotic dancers and other sex industry workers are all at risk of losing their jobs thanks to FOSTA/SESTA. In 2018 the ATC raided all of the strip clubs and gay clubs on Bourbon Street in the guise of “ending sex trafficking”. The raids resulted in no actual cases of sex trafficking being found but many of the clubs were slapped with fines and forced to close anyway.
Instagram and other social media sites have been implementing stricter policies and bans on anything pole dance related. Many studios are unable to properly advertise their classes or promote their business on these platforms.
Sex work is real work. We are not victims.
