Prostitutes of New York (PONY)
Since 1976, when PONY was created by Jean Powell, we have emphasised the concerns of prostitutes. In 1980 PONY was led by Iris de la Cruz, a spokesperson for the city's streetwalkers. In 1989 our coordinating committee reached out to include dancers, telephone sex, fetish work, madams, live performance and more. We continue to welcome people from all areas of the sex industry.
