Jessie Nicole

Jessie Nicole is a sex workers rights activist, occasional producer of digital media, and quasi-academic located in Los Angeles, CA. While focusing on sex work, her work is situated in a broader struggle to dismantle all forms of oppression. As a writer and community organizer she explores the connections between lived experience, cultural theory, media production, and activist projects. Jessie believes firmly in the power of personal narratives and storytelling as tools for social change, which helped lead her to earn a Masters in Literature in 2009. When she is not trying to change the world, she can usually be found rooting loudly for Chicago sports teams, reading anything from romance novels to academic journals, or dancing around shamelessly to pop music. Jessie Nicole is the current director of Sex Workers Outreach Project - Los Angeles, and lives with her partner and their turtle Walter in West Hollywood.
