Prostitution Conference highlights: Jocelyn Elders Talk

Irvine -- Subversity, the KUCI public affairs program, this evening is broadcasting the first in a series of highlights from last weekend's International Conference on Prostitution held in Van Nuys. We will broadcast the speech by keynote speaker Dr. Jocelyn Elders. Elders was surgeon general until Pres. Clinton fired her for supporting masturbation. Last Saturday, Elders called for prostitution to be decriminalized. The show airs tonight from 5-6 p.m. on KUCI, 88.9 FM in Orange County.

The session also included awards given to sex workers from other countries (including testimony by a sex worker from Nicaragua about harassment by Customs at Miami Airport), and to COYOTE founder Margo St. James and conference organizers Norma Jean Almadovar (author of Cop to Call Girl and a previous guest on Subversity) and Prof. Vern Bullough of CSU Northridge.

Subversity airs each Tuesday evening, hosted by Daniel C. Tsang. Past shows are listed on the Web (some available in Vox audio): For more info, send e-mail, or call Tsang at (714) 824-4978.
