NEW YORK — On a recent trip to New York City, cam performer and sex worker advocate Ginger Banks was interviewed by Yahoo News Unfiltered in a video interview called “Society Treats Sex Workers as Second-Class Citizens.”
Banks spoke about sex worker rights, FOSTA, her own life as a cam performer and the ups and downs that go along with her chosen vocation and lifestyle.
Banks told to Yahoo News Unfiltered staffers Brian Prowse-Gany and Joyzel Acevedo, “When I read comments on articles about sexual assault happening to sex workers it breaks my heart. Because a lot of the people say, ‘Well, she’s a sex worker. She gets f***ed for money. Why can’t I grab her right now?’
“Which makes no sense. If you are going to run into a UFC fighter on the street, you’re not going to punch him in the face and say, ‘That’s your job,’ right?”
