Gala Vanting

Writer, Facilitator and Advocate
oh hai

I’m an experienced programs manager, writer, speaker, producer, educator, and advocate for the rights of sex workers (and a sex worker myself). I live and work as a migrant settler on stolen Country in so-called Australia.

Here for collaborations, ideations, and salutations, and your invitations to pay me for things:

You might like to know about some things I do.


For love or for money, this is my best form of expression. Most of it goes to my day job, but there are some examples here


Advocacy and Peer Education

National Programs Manager

Scarlet Alliance, Australian Sex Workers Association

Check Out Clinic Peer Educator

With ACON 



I’ve facilitated workshops and supported other educators to deliver embodiment and sexuality edcation for adults

Topics include consent, BDSM, erotic filmmaking, sex work skills, and others. I’ve also supported on School of Consent and Urban Tantra Professional Training Program courses.



Before you write a sex worker into your screenplay or program an ‘ideas’ event that includes no sex workers: call me, I know some people.



DMC: Dirty Movie Club (Naarm); Xplore Festival; other film & sex work events


Film Production

I was half of Sensate Films, an erotic film production duo with my dear Aven Frey.

Our body of work isn’t growing at the moment, but it’s pretty solid where it stands.



I’m available to speak on panels, at conferences, and in media, or help you find
someone even better. I’ve yet to do a eulogy, but it’s my highest goal.
