Scarlet Road documentary

Scarlet Road is a documentary about sex work and people with disability. It featured myself and two of my clients, Mark Manita and John Blades. It also included Mark’s parents Elaine and ‘Spag’ as well as many other sex workers and people with disability. It also highlighted the work I was involved in with Touching Base, conference presentations and university studies I was doing at the time of filming.
