Fighting stigma with storytelling: Lessons from a former sex-worker | Miranda Kane | TEDxAarhus

Hilariously informal comedienne Miranda Kane tells the story of her past as a sex worker with a powerful message: there should be nothing about us without us. Miranda Kane is a comedian, and was a plus-size sex-worker in London for seven years. She wrote and performed her first show in 2012 which went on to receive 5 star reviews and has sold out in theatres across the UK and Australia. Since then, she has written and recorded the sitcom ‘Slaving Away’ for audible.com, based upon her ‘utterly mundane life as a dominatrix’. She is currently a sex-blogger for The Metro.

Miranda has also taken part in debates and public speaking events to promote the decriminalisation of sex-workers at Cambridge University and Trinity College, Dublin.

She hopes that through comedy and storytelling she can help change the publics opinion of sex-workers to allow them to work in safety and without fear of persecution. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedxSHOW LESS
