Nelson Fringe Festival: Whore's Eye View

Monday 18th-Wednesday 20th March 2024

Whore’s Eye View is a mad dash through 10,000 years of history from a sex worker’s perspective. Equal parts stand up comedy, history lecture, and personal storytelling, Kaytlin Bailey masterfully unpacks the age-old stigma surrounding the oldest profession.

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

Kaytlin Bailey is a globally recognised leader in the sex worker rights movement. She has written op-eds for Huffington Post, The Daily Beast, and Vice, and has spoken at Yale Law School, Penn University, and UCLA.

Kaytlin hosts The Oldest Profession Podcast, where each episode focuses on an “old pro” from history, contextualising that figure in their own time and connecting their story to the ongoing struggle for sex worker rights. She founded Old Pros to change the status of sex workers in society.

Whore's Eye View is produced by Old Pros, a non-profit media organisation creating conditions to change the status of sex workers in society.
