Sex workers' rights

Workers who speak up for one another during the day are often the ones targeted by police at night.
We must end the criminalization of all people who work in the sex trade in order to end this violence. Laws punishing people who engage in sex work serve only to worsen the violence and economic hardships of transgender people already struggling to survive.
Criminalization creates an environment of stigma, discrimination and systematic exclusion that prevents sex workers from accessing health and support services and increases their risk of violence and abuse.
According to Sex Worker Solidarity, a producer from "8 Minutes" called Kamylla after seeing her ad online. The producer promised
I understand that there are women who are indeed coerced into sex work, who are abused by pimps, mistreated by johns, raped and bullied by men on the streets. But that simply was not my story. I made a conscious decision to enter the sex industry. When I wanted to quit, I did. So yes, for me, a job in the sex industry certainly made more sense than a job at Walmart.
