A Sex Worker-based Approach to Media

Though I know not everyone here is on the SWAN bandwagon, I do think they’re doing some good work.

Here are two news items from their feed about how they’re dealing with mainstream media, sex worker media and getting out their messages. Though these news items are vague on the how-to of it all, I like the concepts.

  1. The media sensitization seminar would be a great workshop for the next DA conference.

  2. Correct me if I’m wrong, but my impression was that the seminar itself was held WITH representatives of mainstream media. It was not a media seminar for and by sex workers. Bringing in outside media just for the one seminar might be problematic at DA.

  3. Good point on the DA thing.
