Craig Seymour interview

RadicalVixen has a interesting interview up where she talks with Craig Seymour working on All I Could Bare: My Life in the Strip Clubs of Gay Washington, D.C. In this interview, Seymour describes one of the ways in which to encourage sex worker solidarity.

Quotes from the post:

What do you think is the best way to promote solidarity with fellow sex workers?
It’s the same way you’d promote solidarity among all people — don’t judge, and try to put yourself in the other person’s shoes. It would always drive me crazy when my fellow strippers would look down on hustlers or porn models. I mean, it’s fine if that’s not your choice. But there’s no point in looking down on people who make the choice to do it. And most people outside of the sex industry think it’s all the same anyway. (I learned this lesson firsthand from the critical reactions to my book. Numerous reviews refer to me as a “prostitute” even though all I ever did was j/o for one guy one time; he didn’t touch me, and I didn’t touch him.)
