$pread Anthology Project Collective is a New York-based group of three former editors and a former art director of $pread magazine – a publication by and for sex workers and their allies that published from 2005 to 2011. Their mission was to illuminate the sex industry and provide a forum for sex workers to speak for themselves. Their current activities include a best-of collection of the magazine as an anthology – “Ö$pread: The Best of the Magazine that Illuminated the Sex Industry and Started a Media Revolution;” and a 7-day exhibition that includes both old and current works.

Their awards include Utne award and best-of listings in the San Francisco Bay Chronicle and Village Voice.
