Do What You Wanna Do – Just Know That You are Not Alone

Do What You Wanna Do – Just Know That You are Not Alone
The Seattle Grrrl Army is behind this poignant mural on Aurora Avenue just north of 41st, a spot popular with prostitutes. The mural lists resources for prostitutes including The Organization of Prostitution Survivors (OPS), Children of the Night, and The Genesis Project.

For background on Aurora, check out The Stranger article The Message on Aurora and this short video describing the history of Aurora Avenue.

Update 2014-10-18: The Art of Survival (video) by Aileen Imperial is a KCTS 9 piece about this mural.

  1. Thank you for capturing a picture of this mural before it was torn down. I am working on a profile of a woman who was able to escape the life of prostitution because of this mural. Would it be ok to use this photo if I credit you/your blog?
    Thanks,
    Aileen
