Tilly Lawless | Ideas at the House
In this candid one-on-one conversation, Edwina Throsby meets Tilly Lawless, sex worker, activist and author of newly released contemporary fiction novel ‘Nothing But My Body’, whose honesty and outspoken advocacy has earned her a dedicated community of followers.
The wide-ranging discussion traces Lawless’ journey from her early childhood in coastal New South Wales through her first experiences with sex work, her relationship with her family, and the strength she came to draw from a newfound sense of community. Along the way, she opens up about her often complex feelings for sex work, her mental health struggles, and negotiating her queer identity in largely straight business model.
