Topic: Sammi talks to Mish Glitter Pony from the Scarlett Alliance. Mish talks about their life as a transgender community activist and sex worker.

Guest: Mish Glitter Pony

Topic: Sammi chats to Mish Glitter Pony of The Scarlet Alliance. Formed in 1989 as a national forum for sex workers across Australia, The Scarlet Alliance became a strong support and lobbying organisation for sex workers across the country. While the rights of sex workers have remarkably improved over the last 20 years, there clearly is still a whole lot more work to do. Did you know that once you register as a sex worker, you actually can't get taken off the list even if you stop working as a sex worker!
