A Gay Shame (gayshame.net) podcast.
Gentrifying neighbors, politician Hilary Ronen, the SFPD, and the media conspired to shut down parts of Capp Street in the Mission using concrete barricades. While they continue to sink millions into a fire hazard that makes sex workers less safe, Gay Shame talked to Celestina Pearl (St. James Infirmary | stjamesinfirmary.org), Dilara Yarbrough (scholars.org/scholar/dilara-yarbrough), Cesar Espinoza Perez (instagram.com/juliuscaesarsf/), and Ivy Anderson (co-editor of ‘Alice: Memoirs of a Barbary Coast Prostitute’ | voicesfromtheunderworld.com) on the history of sex work in the Bay; why decriminalization is better than legalization; and how to help sex workers under attack by the City. | Mission DeFence: instagram.com/missiondefence_sf | Rad Mission Neighbors: radmissionneighbors.org | People’s Mission Coalition: thepeoplesmissioncoalition.com | patreon.com/sadfrancisco
