“Ok, so, my name is Thierry Schaffauser, I’m a sex worker, or a whore if you want, I’m queer, I’m a drug user, I’m a migrant, and recently I’ve read something about sexual addiction so maybe I will claim that as well! What I’m doing in terms of political activism I do, particularly everything, for freedom. Which is related to sexual minorities.  I started activism with Act-Up in Paris around HIV politics. I’m very involved with sex worker activism, queer activism, things like that...”  - Thierry Schaffauser, London, 2012.



The out of print publication is held in the Tate Britain and Martin Parr Foundation collections.
