Drawn Petition for the Human Rights, Safety and Social Inclusion of Sex Workers

list.co.uk, UK
March 2010 – In a collaboration with International Union of Sex Workers, artist Natasha Gomperts decided to highlight the danger to prostitutes whose human, civil and labour rights are being eroded by legislation.

Rather than collecting signatures, Natasha is drawing portraits that exhibited at 54 The Gallery in Shepherd Market, Mayfair’s ancient red light quarter in London from March 29 through April 4. Natasha's portraits include Mighty Boosh comedian Noel Fielding; 80s star Adam Ant; MPs Mike Hancock and John McDonnell; Brit Artist Michael Landy; Director of Research and Development at the Whittington Hospital, James Malone-Lee; and Kasabian guitarist Chris Edwards. Also featured are doctors, nurses, gallery directors and barristers, plus people on the streets, markets, bars and clubs of London, the homeless and sex workers.
