Abstract:

Andi Sebastian was born in Bordertown, South Australia. She majored in English and Drama at university. In 1977 Andi joined the Women's Unit of the Premier's Department and established the Women's Information Switchboard. She became involved in sex industry politics when she helped the Scarlet Alliance to make a submission to a Select Committee of Enquiry into Prostitution and became their media spokesperson. Andi discusses the defeat of the Millhouse reform bill in the early 1980s; her renewed involvement in the mid 1980s with the establishment of the Prostitutes' Association; and the drafting and withdrawal of the Pickles decriminalisation bill. Andi describes changes in the sex industry during the 1980s; sex workers' health programs of the late 1980s; and the organisation of a national conference in 1988. In 1990 Andi was appointed General Manager of the AIDS Council of South Australia, a position she held for three and a half years.
