About this submission

At night my Uber driver broke down crying because the previous passenger, a 19 year old sex worker reminded him of his estranged daughter. "Late Shift" explores the dual narrative that exists around sex work. What appears to be an ineluctable tragedy to some is a form of liberation for others. De-stigmatizing sex work is at the forefront of representation in media today. There is a strong push now to empower female and trans folks associated with sex work. Though still, there is pushback. This story reflect the pushback from a father trying to "save" a young stranger.
