Real Work: Intricacies of the sex industry
Proudly Supported by Metro Arts
This month’s INFORM panel will explore the many jobs within the sex industry beyond their stigma and for what they truly are; work. At this panel you should expect to hear conversations about balancing workloads, the juxtaposition between sex workers and non-sex workers within the industry, social media presence, societal connotations and practitioners with multiple roles.
To shed light on this complex topic are leading Australian adult performer Lucie Bee, award-winning game developer Kim Allom and multi-talented designer, artist and dancer Harley Barnes-Roos.
Following the panel there will also be an AMA with all the panellists so please submit your questions when you buy you ticket!

Harley Barnes-Roos is a Townsville-born, Brisbane based embroidery artist, collage artist, graphic designer and stripper. She made the solo move here at 17 to pursue a career in design and to broaden her horizons. Out of a slow growing curiosity, and after reading Jenna Jameson’s ‘Make Love Like A Porn Star’, Harley decided to see what the adult industry was like. Before coming "out" as a dancer she secretly balanced a part-time design job along with dancing three to four nights a week for around seven months, and running Brisbane Collage Club andHarley & Händen , which brought its challenges. Since beginning in June 2016, Harley has danced at Love & Rockets and Honey B’s clubs in Brisbane, as well as Pumps in Brooklyn, NY.
