On June 2, 1975, over 100 sex workers began an eight-day occupation at the Saint-Nizier Church in Lyon, France. They demanded the end of fines, stigma, police harassment, and the release of 10 sex workers who had been imprisoned a few days earlier for soliciting. June 2nd has since become a benchmark day for honoring sex workers all over the globe and recognizing their often-exploited working conditions.
This year, Kink Out is teaming up with Free Speech Coalition and Strippers United at The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles to present:
