Red Light Lit presents COSMOS featuring Antonia Crane

A small town girl leaves her troubled family and starts stripping — which introduces her to a community that keeps her sober and saves her life — but a roller-coaster lifestyle ensues. She gets drugged, does enema shows, and unionizes the club. When she tries to quit and go to graduate school, her mother is diagnosed with terminal cancer. Broke and broken, she returns to sex work, which leads to her arrest and a new resilience. Spent is a memoir about a woman’s journey through the sex industry, but it’s also a story of family, community, and the constant struggle against loneliness.

Join us for a magical night of erotic readings, music and mayhem on the rooftop of Ace Hotel, Downtown Los Angeles.
