The Threat is Always There: Radio Adelaide documentary on sex work in SA

Radio Adelaide, April 2016

In this oral history documentary, produced by Judith Peppard, South Australian sex workers and their advocates describe how they organised politically to work for law reform and put in place measures to keep workers safe during the height of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Sex workers talk about how living in a criminalised environment affects their work and lives.

The Threat is Always There features interviews with the three women who managed the work of SIN, from 1998 to the present, and the spirited Sylvia, who explains why she set up PASA in 1986. The documentary also draws on archival materials, including documents from the SIN library, Hansard debates, court records and interviews from the archives of the State Library of South Australia.
