THE EROTIC SERVICE PROVIDERS UNION ANNOUNCES: COURTESAN CARNAVAL
Exciting New Series of Spring Charity Events and Parties to Fund Worker Rights Educational Programs
The â€˜San Francisco Courtesan Carnivalâ€™ will take place in San Francisco during the Spring of 2007, beginning Sunday, April 29, through to June 7, 2007. The first of the two confirmed events consist of The Porn Star Karaoke Rock and Roll Show and Auction, co-sponsored with the Harvey Milk Democratic Club (www.milkclub.org), that takes place at Annieâ€™s Social Club, on April 29, 2007, from 6:00 p.m. to 10 p.m. The frolicking continues with the ESPUâ€™s Burlesque Cocktail Mixer and Silent Auction, co-sponsored with Pride at Work (www.prideatwork.org), that takes place on Thursday, June 7th, 2007, from 7 p.m to 10 pm., at the CafÃ© Flores.
Funds acquired during these events will go to Summer Institute for Union Women training that will educate erotic service providers about their occupational, health, safety, social, civil and economic rights. In addition, erotic service providers will learn how to negotiate for improved wages and work conditions, organizing and how to stay organized, as well as how to wield the power of collective bargaining.
The Erotic Service Providers Union seeks to gain agency on behalf of all erotic service providers regarding their occupational, health, safety, social, civil, and economic rights through affiliating with organized labor. An Erotic Service Provider is anyone who is compensated for his or her erotic services or compensated for their support of someone else’s erotic service.
