ABOUT RED CANARY SONG:
Red Canary Song is a grassroots organization advocating and providing resources for Asian Migrant Massage Parlor Workers. It is led by Asian American Sex Workers and Allies, who advocate and gather resources for the Migrant Massage Parlor Workers based in Flushing, Queens, NY. Red Canary Song sprouted from the terrible tragedy of Yang Song, a Chinese massage sex worker, who fell to her death during a police raid in 2017.
Yang Song’s Story: A year prior to the night of her death, Yang Song, a massage parlor worker in Flushing, Queens, was sexually assaulted by a man who identified himself as a police officer. Yang Song filed a report with the NYPD, but identified the wrong man in a line up, a method that notoriously effects false positives. Later that year, and just months prior to Yang Song’s fatal arrest, the NYPD forcibly brought her to their station to try to convince her to become an informant on the other women who worked by her side.
On November 25th, over the Thanksgiving holiday of 2017, an undercover police officer solicited Yang Song with the intention to arrest her. The building’s video cameras show Yang Song shutting the officer out of the door and pacing in anxiety. There is no footage of what happened minutes before Yang Song’s fall, but a camera caught a glimpse of her body dropping past a window. The next morning at New York Presbysterian Hospital in Queens, Yang Song was pronounced dead with multiple fractures to her head and body.
Red Canary Song formed to advocate for a community that is exploited, demonized, victimized, and silenced. It has been recognized and awarded for service to the Asian community by Queens Assembly person, Ron Kim, and Chinatown Assemblyperson, Yuh-line Niou. Red Canary Song is working closely with DecrimNY.org to ensure that the most marginalized sex workers are protected in future decriminazation policies.

The sex work community (myself, included) is so exhilarated for the launch of Tina Horn's new comic book series: SFSX
Notorious kink writer TINA HORN teams up with artist MICHAEL DOWLING (Unfollow, Death Sentence) for SFSX, a social thriller about sex, love, and torture that reads like SEX CRIMINALS in Gilead crossed with Oceans 8-with a SUNSTONE twist!
In a draconian America where sexuality is bureaucratized and policed, a group of queer sex workers keep the magic alive in an underground club called the Dirty Mind. Using their unique bondage skills, they resolve to infiltrate the mysterious government Pleasure Center, free their friends, and fight the power!

I am tickled with glee that Stormy Daniel's has shouted out her support:
“SFSX shoves its sparkly stiletto heel right in the face of anyone who has ever tried to keep sex workers down. Tina Horn’s work reminds us how important sexual freedom is to the American spirit.” — Stormy Daniels
