Narratives of self, identity and sexuality: lessons from the margins

Michelle Bass

Taking the view that sexuality is “a connecting point between body, social identity and norms” (Giddens 1992: 15),  we examine the narratives of people who work in the sex industry (PWSI) in one region of Canada to unpack how they position themselves vis-a-vis dominant discourses about them.
