In the West End of London, an opera that preaches sex worker rights has seen an outpour of support internationally. The 'Sex Workers Opera' works to empower those in the industry, who have to deal with a surplus of negative stigma and constant false representation.

The opera was created to tell the real stories of sex workers and challenge the expectations people so often have of them, fighting against ideas that they are all forced into the industry and exploited. By battling against this kind of negative stigma, the opera looks to promote sex workers' rights by illustrating that the work is a choice for some. The show includes people of various marginalized identities, giving the audience a variety of different perspective to aid in facilitating a more liberal understanding.
