On Tuesday, November 10, 2015, Rhode Island sex worker activist and labor organizer Bella Robinson was hosted by Dr. Alan Brown at Southern Connecticut State University for a lecture titled Sex Work and Human Rights, part of the University’s Social Justice Week. Presented in the Adanti Student Center Theater, Robinson explained to her student audience the basic challenges she faces as a sex worker and advocate.
Dr. Brown, a Rhode Island native, is a member of the University’s sociology department and has studied sex worker issues in his professional work, along with topics pertaining to LGBTQQI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, queer, questioning, intersex) studies and criminology.
