"Sex Work: Gentrification & Queers" is a recording of a workshop presented at Queeriot in June 2010 in Guelph by Lime Jello and Fifi McGee of Big Susie's. They give a background on different kinds of sex work, who does sex work and how gentrification affects where and how people work. They also discuss a few reasons why it's important for queers to ally themselves with sex workers. "Decriminalization of Sex Work in Ontario" consists of an interview with Amy Lebovitch, a sex worker and sex worker rights activist with Sex Professionals of Canada. In this interview the krew discuss the current legal situation, what these laws mean for sex workers, debunk myths about sex workers, discuss why they're fighting for decriminalization as opposed to legalization, and what it means to be an ally to sex workers.
