Whore's Eye View

PRESENTED BY Kaytlin Bailey

Whore’s Eye View is a mad dash through 10,000 years of history from a sex worker’s perspective.

Weaving history, comedic storytelling, and the wisdom of lived experience, Kaytlin Bailey artfully unpacks the complex, age-old stigma underpinning a status quo designed to keep women in their place. The eye-opening message in Whore's Eye View is a compassionate, clarion call, a crash course in history, and a game-changing roadmap for progress that can be sustained once and for all.

Sex worker rights advocate, comedian, and writer, Kaytlin Bailey is the Founder & Executive Director of Old Pros, a non-profit media organization creating conditions to change the status of sex workers in society. She hosts The Oldest Profession Podcast where each episode focuses on an “old pro” from history, contextualizing that figure in their own time and connecting their story to the ongoing struggle for sex worker rights. Her first one-woman show, Cuntagious, enjoyed sold-out performances.

A globally recognized leader in the sex worker rights movement, Kaytlin Bailey has been quoted in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, New York Post, The Village Voice, The Nation, and on NBC. She has written op-eds for Huffington Post, Reason, The Daily Beast, and Vice and has been invited to speak on Fox Business, Sirius XM, at Yale Law School, Penn University, and UCLA. Kaytlin’s views are backed by Amnesty International, The World Health Organization, Human Rights Watch, and UNAids who all agree that the decriminalization of sex work is the only policy that reduces violence.

The solo show mixes erudition with earthiness. It flows from unfiltered divulgence to impassioned thesis, all leavened by a parade of well-honed zingers.
