Jinx Lierre Interview Part 1 – The Deuce Rethread

In this episode Mike interviews sex worker and advocate Jinx Lierre about the representation of sex workers on The Deuce. But they talk about a lot more than just the show. In part one of a three part interview, they get into social stigmas that inevitably lead to violence, and why Jinx would rather the show not exist than see it perpetuate the dehumanization of sex workers.
