Roar with Katherine Kendall

Dec 8, 2021

Today on ROAR I speak with Queen Ava and Stephannie about the difference between sex work, and trafficking, and how the law punishes the person that has been trafficked but rarely punishes the pimp that trafficked them. They are advocates for sex workers rights and both work with, a fund created by sex workers for use by sex workers. This is a very real and personal conversation. I am really grateful to these two women for sharing from their personal experiences with us and bringing awareness to what is really going on with sex trafficking in this country.

Queen Ava is 29 and lives in Arizona. She currently works as an adult content creator. Ava was trafficked when she was 17 and physically and sexually assaulted numerous times. You can learn more about Ava's story by reading her two books, available at

Stephannie Tucker, MS LPC, NBCC, is a sex worker rights advocate and trauma informed therapist who has worked with sex workers and trafficking victims, as well as advocated for legal changes on the state level.
