About the Event

The Black, Indigenous and People of Color Adult Industry Collective  (BIPOC-AIC) is hosting “Politrix”. Politrix is a panel of sex workers,  sex educators, activists, and lawyers to unpack and analyze the impact  of new legislations like the EARN IT Act, in the wake of SESTA/FOSTA,  for all laborers in the sex and adult entertainment industries on  Thursday, September 24, 2020 at 9 PM EST/6 PM PST. Panelists will  include Maxine L. Barasc, Phoenix Calida, Raani Begum, SX Noir, India  Thusi and Mia Lee. BIPOC AIC member Mia Little will moderate this panel.

Legal disenfranchisement has plagued sex workers for  decades—including illegitimate searches for street-based workers,  illegitimate raids on strip clubs, sexual harassment and assault of and  violence toward sex workers by law enforcement, and even fines for  shooting pornography without permits in some cities. This conversation  will serve as an enlightenment for and from BIPOC sex workers and some  of our strongest allies to better navigate present day politics.

Through  providing clear and coherent information, the speakers will provide  their own insights about what is happening on the floors of U.S.  courtrooms, Congress and the White House, and the real-life impact of  legislation related to sex work. Panelists will attempt to bridge the  gap of the BIPOC sex industry community’s understanding of the political  landscape to better prepare them for the upcoming election cycle as we  enter one of the most momentous, historical elections that our country  has ever faced.

The BIPOC-AIC empowers adult performers, content  creators and sex workers through career development, skill share, and  mutual aid in order to prevent vulnerability and challenge unfair  business and working conditions BIPOC individuals disproportionately  face in the adult entertainment industry.
