Episode 19 – Chanelle Gallant

We were thrilled to sit down with Chanelle Gallant in Toronto to talk about her brilliant essay, “Fuck You Pay Me,” in Pleasure Activism (see Episode 13), her book-in-progress about sex as a form of unpaid work, and, of course, Hustlers. In the conversation, Chanelle references the crucial work of Kate Zen (Twitter, articles on Truth Out, and Kate Zen on Hustlers); Red Canary, which supports the grassroots organizing of migrant sex workers; and the Toronto-based group Butterfly, which “provides support to, and advocates for, the rights of Asian and migrant sex workers .” Check it out.
