Tower Hamlets council will shortly be making a decision on closing the eleven dancing and adult entertainment venues in the borough.

The voices which have been absent from the public debate before and during the consultation are those of the men and women who work in this industry. Some decide to work in it and others earn their living in it because of economic necessity. In that respect it is the same as most other jobs.

Just like workers in other careers the women and men in the dancing & adult entertainment industry have concerns about job security, working conditions and pay. On top of this they have to confront a public discourse which is overwhelmingly hostile to them.

This public meeting, organised by dancers & adult entertainment workers who are trade unionists in the GMB and Equity, is an opportunity to listen to and discuss with the people who make their living dancing and performing in these venues. They are organising. Come and hear what they have to say.
