All set to attend a decriminalization panel in Manhattan I was -- indirectly -- asked not to attend the event hosted by Best Practices Policy, New Jersey Red Umbrella Alliance, and Black Coalition of Sex Workers for the U.N. Commission on the Status Of Women. This is now the third year I have been banned from what is supposed to be an open forum. I believe the best thing to realize is that our goals as sex workers and sex trade survivors as have similar language and meaning though are not shared or inclusive to each other when we are from different cultures. The U.N. seems the place to being us together. Realistically - Perhaps we are not stronger together.
