Stories about Sex Workers, Written by Sex Workers

By

Rumpus contributor and BFF Antonia Crane has written an episode for Driven—a web series created by Rumpus founder Stephen Elliott—called “Poppy,” that is centered on authentic representation of sex work. Antonia writes,

This episode is our dream episode because it accurately reflects a sex worker’s story of intimacy and the possibility of contentment with a diverse, trans and queer cast and crew. It’s crucial for sex workers to tell our stories in a cultural climate that seeks to silence and exploit us.

The Rumpus has always celebrated sex workers and championed the importance of sex workers’ rights—and Antonia has always been a huge part of that effort. Learn more, including who is set to play the character Poppy, and help fund Antonia’s dream project, here.
