Body of WorkersA new sex worker art space
RSVP FOR THE SOFT LAUNCH
FEB 20, 2021 | 2-6pm EST
Body of Workers (BoW) is a virtual private gallery created by and for sex worker artists. BoW serves as a sanctuary for sex workers, an act of resilience against the gentrification of the internet, and a peepshow for art patrons.
Sex workers are invited to join the site as artists and to share their content and art with each other. Members of the public are invited to join the site as patrons (currently for free and, eventually, for a fee) to see the content that sex working artists choose to share. BoW is our next step in a longer-term vision to create autonomous, sustainable, and safer spaces for sex worker art online.
