…you can consider yourself a sex worker. A sex worker isn’t necessarily someone who has sex with her/his clients. While all these professions may be vastly different from one another, we are linked by one thing-our knowledge and expertise in a specific profession related to sex. We are asking you to come share your skills and knowledge with us this summer at the 2008 Desiree Alliance Conference in Chicago. From July 16-21 sex workers from all over the country will gather in Chicago for the national convergence, “Pulling Back the Sheets: Sex, Work, and Social Justice.”

Please join us as either a presenter or attendee. Your voice is important to us.
