This was a great success in my small town Ontario library. And, hands down, the most popular book was a transgender woman. She was so much in demand that, with her permission, we doubled and then tripled her readers.

Checking out the stripper and then following it up by checking out the prostitute is like reading the sequel.

This seems like a good idea that could easily go bad. What's stopping people from "checking out" participants in an effort to 1) block up their time to keep them away from others or 2) berate, harass, or attempt to "fix" them?

This would be interesting. I've noticed that most of the hatred in the world stems from people being unable to see things from others' points of view.

@6,
Yes, the road from stripper to prostitute is short indeed.
