Several months ago, activist Bella Robinson presented a lecture at Southern Connecticut State University on life as a sex worker. She was invited there by Dr. Alan Brown of the Sociology Department. I recently had the opportunity to sit down for a conversation with Dr. Brown.
A native of Rhode Island, Brown has worked with at-risk populations, including sex workers and HIV/AIDS patients, in the US and Canada. During the conversation, we discussed his own sociological scholarship and views descending from it as well as his thoughts on the so-called rescue industry and the notion of a sex trafficking awareness month.
