Berlin Branch Coordinator
The BSWC-BERLIN: Zee Xaymaca, is a badass queer, Black, perpetually wandering heaux, writer, and sex work researcher. I’m currently studying legal regimes and Sex Workers’ rights in Europe. I’m passionate about Black liberation particularly for Black womxn who fight white supremacy with their very existence. Sex workers' rights benefit society as a whole and ensures the safety of the intersectionally oppressed so I got loud about it. I started The Popped Cherry Project as a virtual hub to share with others my journey to understanding life, sex work and human rights as a Black Feminist.

The BSWC-PNW: Jay is an innersex parent to 5 and FS Domme. Entering sex work in their teens, Jay has also worked as a nurse, healthcare administrator, and policy writer. Sex work allows Jay to find a liveable way to navigate colon cancer, parenting, and constant sexual fetishization based on race and gender.
As a political insider, Jay furthers the movement through writing, speaking engagements, and supporting organizations built around racial equity and decriminalization.

Madame Fae Goddess is the chapter leader of The BSWC-NC. Madam Fae believes in the shared joy, pleasure, and pain of beauty, life, and death. As black, bisexual, polyamorous, womxn, and pro-domme. Madam Fae seeks to have a space where her dominant punk rocker persona, black hippy childhood, and psychology degree can come together for the perfect cause: pleasure activism. She supports finding therapy for fellow sex workers, and also has a pension for artists of all kinds. Dance and Domme performance art are her personal favorites at the moment. She encourages sex workers to share their art with the world, too.
