Y’all, it’s here! Season 6 has officially landed and I am so excited to kick off this brand new season with this feisty firecracker, Marcela Alonso. Marcela is a digital content creator and the host of the sex worker podcast, Get Schooled. She brings on decades of experience in our industry including many years as an exotic dancer, a dominatrix, cam model and content creator. Marcela started off as a survival sex worker in the mid-90s and speaks to that time where there wasn’t much diversity. She shares the prejudices that she personally received and bore witness to discriminatory behaviour from various strip clubs across the USA. Of course, it was a different time back then and although this generation has welcomed more sex workers of colour, Marcela shares that there is still much work to do. Our conversation begins with a call for diversity and inclusion and veers off into other related topics like underrepresentation, fetishization, addressing stereotypes, colonization, sobriety, sensationalism and more. I had such a great conversation with Marcela and can’t wait to have her speak on the podcast again one day.
