Gerald Hannon retires from sex work


Gerald Hannon retires from sex work

Celebration set for Toronto's Goodhandy's nightclub
Gerald Hannon is retiring from sex work, and to celebrate, he's throwing a party on Nov 25 at Goodhandy’s nightclub in Toronto.

Hannon, who is also a board member of Xtra's publisher, Pink Triangle Press, has been a sex worker for close to 25 years. Along the way, he has been the object of lust, love and hate.

Back in the mid-'90s, Hannon was at the centre of a media circus when the press picked up on his work in the sex trade and cross-referenced it with his work as an instructor at Ryerson University.

“Ryerson Prof: I’m a Hooker,” screamed the cover of the Toronto Sun.

Below is a video interview between Hannon and fellow sex worker Sasha Van Bon Bon.

The proceeds from Hannon’s retirement party are going to Maggie's: Toronto Sex Workers Action Project. For more information on the organization, click here.
