Nova Caine and AM met online through a dispute in a comment thread on Instagram. The topic? Pole dancers getting shadow banned. Nova’s point? “What did you think would happen? Be our ally. It’s the only way to fix this.” Since then, the two have bonded and have similar dreams of industry reform. Nova’s has one of the most unique ways of healing her body through dance. As a veteran, a mother and a sex worker, her perspectives come from many angles and it’s fascinating.
