Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Often misunderstood and stigmatized, sex workers have organized to put on this pop-up exhibit that asks you to listen to their voices and reflect on how society defines "sex work."

Current and former sex workers from across the world will showcase their photography, video, gifs, comics, drawing, installation, zines, archival material to help distigmatize it and turn attention toward issues they face including incarceration, HIV/AIDS, police violence, trauma/sexual violence, healing, sex workers’ rights, poverty, labor, gentrification, race, gender identity, migration.

There will also be live speaking events that'll feature the sex workers themselves: a "Sex Work Movement 101" event on Tuesday, March 10 at 6:30pm; "Why sex workers want decrim aroudn the world" on Thursday, March 12 at 6pm; "The unsung stories of sex workers" on Saturday, Mach 14 at 6pm; and a "sex workers' town hall with former Queens District Attorney candidate Tiffany Cabán" on Sunday, March 15 at 3pm.
