Working People

Nov 13, 2018

In this episode, we round off our special two-week series on sex work by talking to Kai, a sex worker and DJ in Atlanta, Georgia. Kai is a wonderful, funny person and, in our chat, he shares some really important insights about different kinds of sex work, how sex workers take care of themselves and each other, and about the disastrous real-life implications the SESTA-FOSTA bills have for sex workers. We also talk to Kai about his life story. We talk about having to move from coast to coast as a kid and make new friends in completely different kinds of cities. We talk about finding friends in different groups, and about being a total band kid. We talk about his time at college, we talk about his job delivering weed on his bike all over the city, and we talk about the time Kai met his first client as a sex worker. And we talk about the crucial need for non-sex-worker (“civilian”) allies to speak up in support of sex workers, and to be as loud as possible.
