Erotic Service Provider Union Party Tonight

(SAN FRANCISCO, CA) -- The Erotic Service Providers Union (www.ESPU-CA.org), in conjunction with San Francisco Pride At Work, is proud to announce the final-in-a-series of 'San Francisco Courtesan Carnival,' solidarity parties that will support labor rights and education funding for erotic service providers.

Funds raised will provide tuition so erotic service providers can attend intensive labor skills training organized by the United Association for Labor Education during the summer of 2007.

Entertainment headliners will be the Damnettes, San Francisco's favorite unorthodox, Diy, punk Rock 'n' Roll burlesque show features a new brand of gyrating torsos, with a penchant for torn fishnets. Definitely not the burlesque troupe your mother performed in, the Damnettes are eccentric and eclectic, and transgress the stylistic boundaries of Flashdance, cabaret, drag, flamenco, belly dancing, political and social satire, vocal performance, and on-the-bar Go-Go dancing.

In addition, a silent auction will include leading high-quality adult novelty items provided by PRThatRoXXX.com, a portrait or advertising photo session with acclaimed Bay Area erotica photographer Tom Mayes, a skateboard from Rodeo Surf Company, books on erotica, BDSM and sexuality, as well as - the grand prize - two San Francisco Giants tickets on LGBT Night.

The ESPU's Burlesque Cocktail Mixer and Silent Auction, co-sponsored with Pride at Work (www.prideatwork.org), takes place on Thursday, June 7, 2007, from 7 p.m to 10 pm., at the Café Flores, in San Francisco. Admission is Free!

Funds acquired during this event will go to Summer Institute for Union Women training that will educate erotic service providers about their occupational, health, safety, social, civil and economic rights. In addition, erotic service providers will learn how to negotiate for improved wages and work conditions, organizing and how to stay organized, as well as how to wield the power of collective bargaining.

According to Maxine Doogan, organizer of the ESPU, "The ESPU's fun-filled and light hearted events all have a more serious intent, which is to educate erotic service providers about their labor rights. The ESPU is honored to have the support of San Francisco Pride at Work. The GLBT community is the leader of sexual freedom rights and there is a natural association with, and empathy for, erotic service providers and their rights efforts. Working together we will create a more powerful force in the labor rights movement."

The Erotic Service Providers Union seeks to gain agency on behalf of all erotic service providers regarding their occupational, health, safety, social, civil, and economic rights through affiliating with organized labor. An Erotic Service Provider is anyone who is compensated for his or her erotic services or compensated for their support of someone else's erotic service. Maxine concludes, "By associating with organized labor, which is already aware of our common labor rights, we can access support for our labor and social rights through their already existing structures."

Event schedule subject to change. Please visit www.espu-CA.org for up-to-the-minute event schedules.

The ESPU's Burlesque Cocktail Mixer and Silent Auction takes place Thursday, June 7, 2007, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., at Café Flore, 2298 Market Street, located at the corner of Market and Noe, San Francisco, CA. Tel: 415-621-8579. Admission: Free. For directions, please visit: http://www.cafeflore.com
