The hard-working girls of the Red Rattler have a special night planned on June 2, to celebrate the equally industrious men and women of the sex-work trade.
Featuring burlesque, performance artists and even a clothes stall run by the Scarlet Alliance, the night is a sure-fire way to kick off a weekend devoted to celebrating International Whores Day — held annually on June 2 to comemorate the 1975 Parisian riots which gave birth to the sex-workers rights movement.
Glitter Pony will go-go, Ginger Snaps, Debby Debutante and Cardinal Flaw and Sister Carmen will all be present to add an air of debauched celebration, before a special announcement from the Scarlet Alliance about their 21st birthday plans. Tickets range from $10 unwaged to $20 waged supporters.
The celebration will then hit the streets on June 5 as the Alliance leads a peaceful and colourful march from the Sydney Opera House. Red will be the colour-du-jour for sex workers and their friends. Event starts noon on the Opera House steps.
