Liara Roux is a writer, sex worker, and political activist who fights for human rights for sex workers, freedom of online expression, and the decriminalization of consensual adult activity. Together with peers in the industry, Roux helped launch the first National Sex Worker Lobby Day on Capitol Hill in 2018. Roux’s critically acclaimed memoir is Whore of New York: A Confession (2021). The New York Times reviewer called it “an original reflection on joy, anguish, sex, love and labor.” Roux, who identifies by a variety of pronouns, has been interviewed in Vice, Wired and the Washington Post, and on WAMC/Northeast Public Radio.
