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.
