Radio AvA’s 19th show: Fri 15th December @ 4pm www.radioava.org

Radio AvA is back with a shockingly Christmas-free show. Featuring:

A live interview with Chryssy, a member of the Bent Bars Collective who organise the Bent Bars project- a solidarity and mutual support letter-writing project for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, gender-variant, intersex, and queer prisoners in Britain, informed by prisoner experience, involvement and the belief that prisons are not effective in holding people to account for their actions, healing harms or preventing violence. http://www.bentbarsproject.org

A review of Cosey Fanni Tutti’s re-released album ‘Time to Tell’ from the perspective of an artist who does sex work as a day job; Ava’s bouncy field report from the East London Strippers Collective party Never Mind the Buttocks, including a flash history of strippers’ organising in London and virtual lap-dances; The English Collective of Prostitutes with a news round-up, updates from sex worker organisations USPROStitutes Collective and Empower, and more news from Thailand on International Women Human Rights Defenders Day; Impressions from recent sex workers’ shows ; our agony aunt’s wayward advice on what to do when a client rips you off; Wankers’ Corner; original sex worker’s tunes.

Tune in tomorrow, Friday 15 December @ 4pm on www.radioava.org
