VICTORY: Sex Workers' Art Show Approved at Virginia College

sex workerStudents got approval yesterday to hold a controversial event called the Sex Workers' Art Show on the campus of the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virg. The show is in the midst of a national tour.

The school's president, Gene Nichol, tried convincing students to have the event off-campus. When one couldn't be found (a Unitarian Universalist church considered it, but was prohibited by County law which prevented the church from housing an event featuring public nudity), Nichol cited the First Amendment and gave the show the go-ahead.

The Sex Workers' Art Show is scheduled Feb. 4 and features “performances and monologues by strippers, prostitutes and other sex workers, with its goal being to 'dispel the myth that (the performers) are anything short of artists, innovators, and geniuses.'" Hott. Get your tickets now, people.
