ABOUT QUEENS OF THE UNDERWORLD
Queens of the Underworld provides community for women identifying and femme sex workers that serves as a resource for learning coping-skills and self-care. As a sex worker founded and led business, we understand the unique challenges of the industry and provide a nonjudgmental, non-denominational space to find understanding, compassion,and healing from toxic work environments and associated trauma. We are committed to providing a safe and welcoming atmosphere where people can connect with resources, to continue learning self-love and awareness through classes, mentorship, and peer support.
Our mission, collectively as Queens, is to shed light into the lucrative, often-times labeled "taboo", world of the sex industry. We want to provide a glimpse into the lives of female sex workers, the "Queens of the Underworld", showcasing that every woman has a story and nothing is ever quite as it seems
ABOUT OUR FOUNDER
"I founded this project in November 2016 as I was sitting in the dressing room of the club I used to strip at. The questions of why and how did I get here were weighing heavily on me for some time so I decided to find out. I started with a survey; as they were handed back to me, I discovered that we had a myriad of common denominators. Molestation, neglectful parents, low self worth, seeking validation through others, etc. - but not all. I want to show the duality of the industry; for some it's empowerment, for others it has been a downward spiral of too much pressure and toxicity. I'm working with some girls who have been trafficked by their mother or boyfriends to those who have consciously made the decision to explore the freedom that working brings. I'm excited to put faces to the stories and to exhibit real experiences as told by my Queens."
