Join Desiree Burch, Fern Brady and an all-star comedy, pole dancing and drag line-up 17 December 

BY SOPHIE GRIFFITHS

Dominatrix-turned-comedy star Desiree Burch will be headlining an online star-studded line-up of comedy, pole dancing and drag to raise emergency funds for UK sex workers whose livelihoods have been damaged by Covid-19. 

Joining Desiree on the line-up is Fern Brady, Joe Sutherland, Sikisa, Jacq The Stripper and international pole stars Lauren Elise and Kitty Velour. Every comedian and drag act on the line-up is gay, bi or queer making this a wonderfully LGBTQI inclusive event.

Streaming on International Day To End Violence Against Sex Works (17 December), expect a stigma-busting night streamed straight into your living room, with all funds raised going towards organisations that bring direct relief to sex workers in crisis. 

The event will be hosted by ex-stripper and comedian Sian Docksey, who organised the event after seeing the huge impact that the pandemic has had on the UK sex worker community. 

Supported by a grant from HIV-prevention and support charity Wandsworth Oasis, all proceeds and donations will be split equally between SWARM, National Ugly Mugs. 

Tickets are priced between £5 and £15 and are available here.
