Event description

Description

"There are few greater threats to systems ​of gender, labor, and power than unapologetic sex workers."
~ NY-based sex worker, writer, and activist Lane Champagne


Join me on an adventure back to Calgary's early days, when our city was notorious as “the booze, brothel, and gambling capital" of the Canadian West.

We'll walk the same streets that a hundred years ago were only dirt roads on the banks of the Bow and Elbow Rivers. You'll hear some unbelievable stories about the people, places, and politics of Calgary's still robust sex industry, which, although begrudgingly acknowledged, is rarely visible to those who aren't looking for it.

​Let's go find it -- together!
