Sexy Professionals Social & Skill Share

Sat. Dec 13th — 10am-4pm
FREE EVENT FOR CURRENT & RETIRED SEX WORKERS ONLY – NOT OPEN TO GENERAL PUBLIC
RSVP required -OR- coming with your printed invite in hand

We would like to invite people who work (or have worked) in in aspects of the erotic industry to join us for a day of socializing, sharing knowledge, and building community. At our last SASS, we had over 70 people show up for this event! It was AMAZING! Please come join us for another spectacular year. This event is hosted by SEPIA, the sex worker social network affiliated with SWOP-Seattle. The people involved in SEPIA know how isolating and complicated our jobs can be, and feel that providing community space for us to meet our peers is the best way to stay safe and sane. Please feel swing by at any time during the day.

This even will be hosted at a venue in Columbia City, close to public transportation.
