A stroll with sex workers through Schöneberg

1. December 2022 17:00

free audio tour on the history of sex workers in the red light district Bülowkiez launches on 1st December 2022. In it sex workers Caspar Tate, Ernestine Pastorello, Olivia Green and River Roux guide through the history of sex work in Schöneberg in 12 stops. The audio walk presents the wide variations that exist within sex work, encompassing diverse experiences of life as a sex worker through time. In interviews, sex workers of different backgrounds and experiences inform about the stations of the audio walk and create a vision for the future of their community.

“We have always been everywhere,” sex workers say, making it clear that sex work has been an important part of Berlin from the beginning and continues to be so. However, despite the continuing ubiquity of sex workers on Berlin’s streets and in its establishments, their contributions to the history of the city remain largely invisible. The tour “We Have Always Been Everywhere retells Schöneberg’s history as a history of sex work and with it calls for historical citizenship of sex workers.

“We Have Always Been Everywhere. Sexarbeit im Bülowbogen. Ein Audiowalk zur Geschichte Schönebergs” is a cooperation between sex workers from the Sex Workers’ Section of the trade union Freie Arbeiter*innen Union Berlin, the Schwules Museum and the Berlin History App.


Launch of the app with a guided walking tour in English on 1st December at 5 PM at the underground station Bülowbogen at Potsdamer Str. 129. At 7 PM celebration of the release of the app at the Schwules Museum (Lützowstraße 73, 10785 Berlin).
