Call to Action - Help with Kamylla's Legal Fund

We recently became aware of a situation in Texas, about a sex worker named Kamylla, who was part of the A&E Show “8 Minutes” (which we condemned back in April – read our Open Letter). She was portrayed on the show as a sex worker in need of a new life, and that was true, and is even truer now, than before the TV show came into her life. Kamylla found herself in a desperate situation: struggling with health issues and unable to find work, her bills were piling up and she was facing eviction. Desperate, after applying for job after job, she put up an ad to be a sex worker. She said, “I never imagined I would be in such a situation. But I did it for my family. Every night I...


Let's Get Operational

Like many organizations, The Cupcake Girls is a machine with various intricate parts working together to achieve a common goal. It’s not just comprised of volunteers working directly with clients. There are other individuals working behind the scenes to bake cupcakes, assemble gifts, connect with donors, research community resources, coordinate volunteer orientations, and many other things. Each piece of the puzzle is essential, no matter how small the role, and our team is continually striving to create an efficient system that effectively serves the adult entertainment community. To work towards this goal the Portland branch has created an operations team, and while small in...


"Why Strippers?"

We get asked this question at almost every event we attend, at least once, but usually several times. It’s a common question, especially in a society that both objectifies and diminishes women. So…why “strippers”?

The majority of our clients are women, but we are available and willing to help men & LGBTQ people who work in the adult industry. We happen to believe that everyone deserves to be...


The Power of a Network

If you’ve been following the CCG Portland’s activity over the last couple of months you know our team is in the final training stage for our Sweet Run half marathon and 10k that we’ll be running on May 17th. A few weeks ago we hosted our first in-house fundraising event. We gathered to eat pizza and call, Facebook, Tweet and generally connect with all our friends and family to ask for donations. Every year it’s an effective and sometimes inspirational evening as we watch those friends and family members show up to support us by offering funds and/or words of encouragement. This year, the evening started off slowly.  I posted a status or two on Facebook about the fundraiser and at...
