Party & Performances

Fundraiser for Umbrella Lane & Unity LGBT

A party and fundraiser to support Sex Workers’ struggles and LGBT Unity with music and performances from the sex workers’ community and allies, plus DJ’s and dancing.



Sex Worker Opera

Breaking through stigma and stereotypes, Sex Workers’ Opera is an award winning, repeat sell-out show created and performed by sex workers and their friends.

With music spanning opera to ‘hip-hopera’, incorporating sound art, projections and poetry, it offers an unflinchingly honest, upliftingly human insight into the lives of sex workers locally and around the world.

Golden Flux a performance by Marianne Chargois

Urophilia, Sex Work and Queer Digestion are the themes of this performance combining ethnographic observation and the recycling of abjection into power.

Marianne Chargois has pursued a career for 10 years blending set design in contemporary dance and various forms of sex work. Her written end performed projects link real personal experiences, artistic research and feminist and political analysis around sex work. She is the co-director of the two queer and post porn festivals Explicit (Montpellier) and WHAT THE FUCK? FEST***! (Paris) and a militant from the STRASS (french syndicate for sex workers).
