The Oldest Profession


Apr 2, 2018

The whores are back with the fantastically feisty Ceyenne Doroshow (@doroshow) in Part II of their snow day extravaganza. Kaytlin (@kaytlinbailey) and Wendi (@wendibird82) respond to a listener email and remind us that racists can be sex workers too, then get down to business by singing the praises of trailblazing trans woman Miss Major.
 
After being misgendered and housed with male inmates, she became one of the key negotiators in the Attica Prison Riots in 1971 and went on to work as an advocate for trans women’s rights within the prison system. Miss Major also participated in the Stonewall Riots and eventually founded the Gigi House, an organization dedicated to preserving and celebrating the stories of trans people throughout history. 
 
The ladies also have a very real discussion about the class divisions within the sex worker community, the perversion of historical narratives of trans people AND address the issue of cat murder parks in Peru. ALSO, how can notable trans people better support their community? Who in hell was the stylist for the Kaitlin Jenner shoot?? PLUS tips on which shades to avoid at the tanning salon.
