Speak Up! – NYC Sex Blogger Calendar Funds Put To Work

April 14, 2009

I just got this exciting email from Audacia Ray:

Last fall a group of NYC based sex bloggers got their brains (and boobs) together to make a gorgeous pin-up calendar. Sales of the calendar benefit Sex Work Awareness (SWA), a young advocacy organization that I co-founded with several former $pread staffers. SWA works to do public education around sex workers’ issues and to support sex workers in speaking for themselves. To this end, we developed a media training workshop called Speak Up! Media Training for the Empowered Sex Worker, which has been taught in abbreviated forms in Las Vegas and Chicago at the Desiree Alliance conferences. Using funds raised from sales of the calendar, we’ve been able to grow the workshop into a day long session, and the first one is taking place on this Saturday, April 18th.

The participants of the workshop went through an application process and we’ve found a really great first crop of 10 present and former sex workers from all corners of the industry. Most of the participants are New Yorkers, but we’ve also got people coming from Virginia, Toronto, and Rhode Island. After we’re done with them, the group will be ready to take on the world both as media-makers and savvy interviewees. We’ll be releasing them into the wild with Flip video cameras and a bunch of new skills, plus ongoing support from the staff of Sex Work Awareness and each other.

Join us this Saturday evening at a cocktail reception to meet and greet this group of extraordinary sex workers. Immediately after the wrap-up of the training, we’ll be convening at XES in Chelsea, 157 West 24th Street between 6th and 7th avenues. We plan to be at the bar around 5:30. Please feel free to pass this along to anyone you think might be interested, the event is open to the public.

This makes me so happy. I am delighted to have headed a project that can actually help make a difference in the way we view sex and sex workers. The time for change is here and now, and thanks to brilliant, committed and fearless people like Audacia, perhaps we’ll be lucky enough to see sex workers given the rights that are their due as humans and as workers.

What Would You Like?

February 22, 2009

This morning on twitter I made a comment about wanting an all male sex blogger calendar which then led to me asking the people who follow me on twitter what they would like to see in the 2010 NYC Sex Bloggers Calendar.

Would you like to see all men, all women, six men, six women or both in each month?

We strongly feel that this calendar is a CommUNITY calendar with all of you who blog or just read our blogs who supported us on the 2009 calendar. We would now like to have you tell us what you would like to see in the 2010 NYC Sex Blogger Calendar.

Leave us a comment.

Thanks,
Diva

News, News and more News

February 3, 2009

It has been quite some time since our last update and much has happened. The big news is that as of February 1st the price of the calendar is now $10. The full 100% of the sale price still all goes to Sex Work Awareness.

Speaking of SWA, Audacia just announced this week the first Speak Up! for April in New York City. If you read about SWA you know this was one of several things SWA planned to do with the money raised from the sale of these calendars. This Speak Up! in New York City will be the first of what they hope to be several held around the country.

Next has been the recent media about the calendar. In January we were featured on both the Village Voice and Nerve.

Our last bit of news is that due to the overwhelming support we had we are now in the planning stages for the 2010 NYC Sex Blogger calendar and are looking for people to help work on it. If you would like to be part of the next sex blogger calendar please contact us at nycsexbloggerscal@gmail.com.
