Leading adult entertainment directory Slixa announces its support of International Transgender Day of Visibility, which was celebrated this past Sunday, March 31, with the release of a first-person essay written by Pandora Rose, an East Asian trans woman.
.
In ‘The Margins of the Margin: Why Trans Women Are Often Relegated in Sex Work’, Rose discusses the particular challenges of being a trans provider, and her own personal experiences in navigating those challenges throughout her career.
.
“At the heart of the inequality that impacts trans women in the sex industry is the notion that trans people are subhuman – that our services, bodies, boundaries and safety are worth less than that of our clients or cis sex workers,” writes Rose.
.
“It’s common parlance for the sex industry to refer to us by the degrading terms ‘shemale’ and ‘tranny’… and while some might argue that this is just an outdated holdover from porn, I believe that it reflects our general status in the caste system of the sex work hierarchy.”
.
Rose’s essay also reveals that in 2019, despite having more support, resources and positive acknowledgement than ever before, trans people still have a long way to go in terms of cultural acceptance in general, and value for their services in particular.
.
“’Survival’ sex work and 100-dollar-an-hour escorting are full of trans women. ‘Elite’ sex work – the kind that advertises on expensive platforms with professional photos and makes real money – has very few.”
