Listen to Alexis Miranda tell her story

“The people coming in here with money want to take out the life that has always been Polk Street. And create their own ambience….The bar across the street wanted us closed. They figured that…if [Divas] wasn’t here that the prostitution wouldn’t be here. Well you know prostitution has been on Polk Street for seventy years that I know of….I just wish that people would open their minds to some of the diversity that’s on Polk Street and not try to change it. Clean it up possibly, but don’t try to change it.”
