gala’s (abbreviated) guide to hooker art

This week I’ll be chatting with Christian Vega, creator and host of the world’s only sex-worker-run radio show The Vixen Hour, on the topic of ‘sex work and the arts’.  We both have a list a mile long of topics and examples and gripes and excitements, and we know we won’t get to it all.  In preparing for the show I’ve had a chance to do a little more research on the sex work / art crossovers I already know, which has of course revealed loads of other incredible performers and creatrixes whose work I’m only just coming across.  For listeners of the Vixen Hour and just those who are interested in just another wonderful thing that sex workers give to the world, I’m compiling a resource guide to hooker art.  If you have anything that you think should be added to the list, please contact me and share!

Sadie Lune self-declared ‘Artist, Performer, Lover, Whore’.  Her work often, but not always, addresses themes of sexuality, and she’s currently working on a project called Biological Clock, which addresses her experience trying to become a mother with the confluence of identities she creates – queer, sex worker, broke, feminist…the list goes on.
