A drawn petition for sex work

3 posts in this topic

There is a petition of a slightly different type being run in London, so if you happen to be in London, then contact this lady to 'sign the drawn petition'

Take part in the drawn petition to decriminalise sex work. Portrait artist Natasha Gomperts will be exhibiting in Shepherds Market, an area of London with a long term history of sex work, in late March.

Natasha wants to create a drawn petition for decriminalisation of sex work, made up of hundreds of portraits of people from the sex industry and supporters of our human rights.

Drawings will be made really quickly - it can take from as little as 30 seconds, to as long as a couple of minutes. Natasha will protect your anonymity - pictures can be clearer or more blurred, full face or turned away, as you wish.

Taking part is completely safe, discreet and respectful of your privacy.

You can be drawn over coffee in a caf

I've met this woman several times and it would be great if people can support this. We're hoping that for once there may be some positive, relatively realistic coverage of the industry.

She's got about 300 drawings so far, most of which are unconnected with the industry people, so in addition to her making a portrait as anonymous as you wish (pictures can be clearer or more blurred, full face or turned away), there's lots of "camouflage".

You can email her to arrange a drawing session

drawnpetition@hotmail.com

and there are be to have a couple of days when she'll be in central London to draw people - will post info on here when arrangements made.

Any questions/comments/queries, contact the artist, or feel free to email me

catherine@iusw.org

Many thanks,

Cxx
