Sex Workers Unite, A History of the Movement from Stonewall to SlutWalk with author Melinda Chateauvert who will be the featured guest speaker for the Litigate to Emancipate  Fundraiser for the Erotic Service Providers Legal, Education and Research Project.  According to Chateauvert, despite the acceptance of "sluts," the "prostitute" remains a deeply embedded symbolic marker between decency and disrespect...money changes everything.  The event is open to the public.

Chateauvert shows off her extensive knowledge as historian and activist in her new book, Sex Workers Unite! A History of the Movement from Stonewall to SlutWalk, (Beacon Press, January, 2014) where she recasts sex workers - of all genders, persuasions and occupations - as key activists in struggles for gay liberation, women's rights, reproductive justice, union organizing and prison abolition, and holds that sex worker rights are ultimately human rights (www.sexworkersunite.com).  Her past works include Marching Together and have appeared in a variety of publications, including Sex Work: Writing about Women in the Sex Industry (Cleis Press, 1986, 1997); the Journal of African American History; the Journal of Women's History; $pread Magazine; and Labor History.

Dr. Chateauvert is currently a fellow at the Center for African Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. She sits on the board of the Leather Archives and Museum and participates in the Positive Justice Project to decriminalize HIV+ status.

Money raised  will support the Litigate for Emancipate Legal Fund. ESPERLP is a sex worker-lead nonprofit and is committed to empowering the erotic community and advancing sexual privacy rights through legal advocacy, education, and research.
