Though it's a human-rights movement with roots in gay-liberation activism, the fight for rights for sex workers is much less recognized, says Melinda Chateauvert. Her new book,Sex Workers Unite: A History of the Movement From Stonewall to SlutWalk
aims to change that, chronicling the the movement from the struggle to end police brutality to the push to change legislation. Chateauvert will sign and read from her book at 7:30 p.m. Friday, February 7
at the Tattered Cover Colfax
. We caught up with the author, activist and historian in advance of her visit to Denver to talk about the controversial movement.
