Prof. Tami Gold’s documentary It’s Just a Job
received a grant from the New York Foundation for the Arts – NYC Women’s Fund.

It’s Just a Job tells the story of the movement to decriminalize sex work through an assemble of people who work in the sex trades. Interviews and dramatic scenes of protests, debates, and confrontations, contextualize the complex dynamics to change the laws that criminalize sex work. At the heart of the movement is a commitment to confront the racism, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia that drive much of law enforcement.
