Sexquisite Manchester

12th March 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 11:59 pm

Join us for an evening of ground breaking performances from Sexquisite: a sex worker artist collective creating multidisciplinary, political, and stigma defying work.

You can expect comedy, poetry, dance, and music, plus an afterparty with a DJ til midnightΒ πŸ”₯

Come and help us fight the stigma, and party with us in celebration of how multi-talented sex workers are! ✨

About Sexquisite:
We are a celebratory, inclusive, artistic safe space for sex workers and allies. Founded at the beginning of 2019, we exist between the realms of a political-performance-party and aim to bring the artist and audience closer through creative expression.
At Sexquisite we believe in art as a force for change and do this by building up members of our community and providing a platform for sex worker artists to make, create and share work!
We host events, make theatre, run creative writing workshops, dance classes and more. For further information, check out our website:

Partisan wouldn’t be able to run without volunteers. We are a largely volunteer run organisation, and all our events are staffed by these amazing people. Come get stuck in and help to run the party! Don’t worry if you’ve never worked in a bar or on a venue door, you’ll receive a full induction, free entry to the night & a free drink.
