No matter what happens, today is HISTORIC and the work of @DecrimNowDC made this happen. @HIPSDC @NJNP_DC @SafeSpacesDC and many other groups are immeasurable. It’s truly a win. This moment is a win.
@councilofdc opens w @charlesallen setting an ask for respect and the necessity of this debate. @JackEvansWard2 gives some history on the issue in DC & approaches to prostitution - all rely on policing, inc “creative solutions” which were considered unconstitutionally harsh

1/? Last thread. I’ll keep it brief.

I cannot stand the anti sex work hive mind, esp from the left.

I rarely talk about all my trauma, because I know it will be used against me.

But f*ck it. Here we are. Let’s get honest about the sex trade and survival under this system
2 I was born to a drug addict/alcoholic dad and a severely mentally ill mom. In the west side of Chicago. They had no water, no heat, no food. It was real since I took my first breath.

Eventually child services got us. I went to foster care.

This was life 🤷🏾‍♀️
3 in foster care, we got shuffled. Nobody wanted all of us. I eventually ended up w/ a white conservative family that wanted a cute black girl to show off/clean the house.

It was shitty, but better than “all you can eat popcorn night” eating 🍿 make u realize how good food is
