I'm a stripper and I've got rights

Kitty, 19, is a professional stripper and the East London Stripper Collective’s youngest recruit. The Collective is a union that fights for better workplace conditions for its members, and to break the stigma that surrounds the profession.


“A lot of people, if I say I’m a stripper they’re like, ‘Oh no, let’s just say that you’re a dancer…’ And I’m like, ‘No, I’m a stripper…I like that word, I don’t think it should be a dirty word’.“
