Corky's Queer Club

Article written by Corky's Queer Strip Club Founder: Katie Winten. 

 

I’m Katie Winten, a queer Taurean femme sex worker and arts worker. I’m the Momager of Corky’s Club, a Queer strip club prioritising LGBTQIA+ strippers and sex workers that are marginalised in regular heteronormaitve eurocentric strip clubs.

CORKY'S INSPIRATION AND ETHOS

Working as a stripper for years inspired me to start Corky's Club. I was overwhelmed by the heteronormativity of the strip clubs I was working in, and I dreamed of a queer strip club in which all bodies and all genders are stripping, and all bodies and all genders feel comfortable to enter into as patrons. Racism, homophobia, transphobia and ableism are rife in the sex industry, and I wanted to create a safer queer strip club space in which people who experience discrimination in regular clubs can be celebrated. This statement from performer Salem Serene really sums up the ethos of Corky's: 

"This one goes out to all my queer sex workers who have to deal with boring ass cis-men constantly telling us they'd do our jobs in a heartbeat because it would be "easy money".

That believe we must either have to love our jobs or be empowered by our work, as if all work under capitalism doesn't suck.

That have taken it too far with their entitlement to our bodies beyond the service description just because they paid.

That ask us if we're married or have boyfriends, and continuously lock us into whatever narrative they've got in their heads.....

You are seen, you are heard, and you are loved."
