As an advocate for sex worker’s rights, one of the greatest honors of my career has been assisting with the memorial for Margo St. James this May Day, 5/1/2021. Unfortunately, I never got to meet Margo. I knew of the St. James Infirmary before I knew of its namesake. Although I was steeped in her legacy, I only learned the details of her life many years into this work.
Allow me the pleasure of telling you the legend of Margo St. James.
