After I moved to New Orleans last summer, my primary source of income was dancing at Dixie Divas, a small strip club in the French Quarter that employed women of size and women of various ages and backgrounds, including trans women. If customers acted out of line, the staff always had our backs. But the aforementioned agencies have yet to make any arrests for that specific crime, nor have officials provided any public evidence of trafficking, according to a February statement from a NOPD spokesperson. The raids, which continued through late January, shut down a total of eight clubs either permanently—in the case of both Temptations and Dixie Divas—or temporarily, leaving some to operate after paying hefty fines and loss of liquor licenses after police say they found evidence of prostitution and drug crimes, among others. This left hundreds of dancers without work right before Mardi Gras, one of the most lucrative times of year for New Orleans service-industry workers. This vision has its roots not just scrubbing the district clean, but has the mark of Christian moralizing that has recently taken on new potency.

Wednesday, Nov. But at least one waitress and an advocacy organization for those working at the clubs said the operation was a waste of resources that put employees in jeopardy and forced them to undress in front of male officers. The raids were condemned Saturday by Michelle Rutherford, a civil rights lawyer working with the Bourbon Association of Responsible Entertainers, a group formed to support employees at French Quarter strip clubs. This is not a good use of precious law enforcement resources. NOPD should be allowed to focus on real threats to public safety.
