An Open Letter
June 30, 2013 at 3:35 pm
It has come to our attention that many people have been offended by our web series Hooker Makeover.
World of Wonder and Michelle Visage have long been huge supporters of Sex Workers’ rights, and have been committed to not perpetuating stereotypes or encouraging whorephobia.
The intention of Hooker Makeover was to produce a send-up of traditional makeover shows. Something that was playful and full of heart, not to contribute to negative perceptions of the sex worker industry. However, as an act of solidarity and support to this misaligned industry, we have decided to discontinue the series.

I really enjoyed this when I discovered it, and seeing Morgan every week was just the cherry on top! I'm really sad this ended. The editing was a hot mess but that was part of the show's charm. What are your feelings?
