Sex Worker “Art” Show Hosted by College of William and Mary

Recall AFTAH’s exclusive special report on the Homosexual Sex Worker Panel at “Creating Change”

On Feb 12, 2007, at the historic College of William and Mary in Virginia, here’s what one sex worker “artist” presented to an audience of over 400:

…Jo Weldon shared her story of how a stripper job helped pay her way through college and graduate school.

Why would any institution of higher learning encourage students to imagine sex work — ie, prostitution — as a possibility for their lives?  This is not “controversial” — it’s corrupting.
