Black sex worker liberation
I call to the politicians of New York to grant amnesty for sx workers during the mist of this pandemic- Gizelle Marie
“Black Sx Workers in NYC are dying and at increased risk for police violence under the criminalization of sx work by the NYPD. Sx workers are excluded from financial relief bills, and face discrimination in accessing housing and other jobs. Further discrimination of sx work on digital platforms during the Covid19 pandemic eliminates another necessary source of income to survive. Black sx workers in NYC demand the decriminalization of sx work,the decarceration of sx workers the defunding of NYPD Vice unit and the repeal of the Walking While Trans Ban.
Black Sx workers also demand the repeal of SESTA/FOSTA. (SESTA = Death) [http://rightsandsafety.org/sesta]
Black sx workers demand an end to all legislation that considers sx workers as “unintended consequences” or “collateral damage”, such as the EARN IT Act which just passed the Senate Judiciary Committee. We demand justice through our direct action targeting city, state, and federal policymakers. Black Sx Worker Lives Matter!
Historically Black Sx Workers have built culture in the areas of music, fashion, beauty, sxuality, technology, LGBTQIA rights and women’s rights. As Black Sx Workers we demand the acknowledgment and support for the advancements of our rights and contribution to the culture we navigate everyday. Sx Workers are Thot leaders and futurist and it is time for the community to show up for the most marginalized who lead the world’s liberation. We are not free until we are all free- SX NOIR.”

Flickr slide show Part 1 of 2 The MC announced they were taking over Times Square. (they didn’t really) But they did have a large crowd of sex workers and friends listening to speakers before they marched downtown. There were the usual complaints about the police treating them badly. Two representatives from Queens spoke. And it seems, according to the protestors, black sex workers suffer racism. Whatever, this was a very white crowd.
Flickr Slide show (Part 2) The Sex Workers announced they were taking over Times Square. However, not all were participating in the Sex Workers March. There were Free,Free Hong Kong/China protestors. A few Muslim tourists. Vagrants. Models. And what seemed to be a young lady filming her quinceañera video. Just another day in Times Square.
