After all, we had much to do with the privilege you hold today. It was the transgender sex workers at Stone Wall who fought for you rights, so I beg to ask... why are you leaving the whores - or anyone else -behind. Have your not heard #WHORENATIONS cries. Sister, I beg you to use your voice to give Sex Workers the platform they desperately need to stop the violence. Please promote the International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers, which will be observed this year - and every year - on December 17
Even after the 2013 award winning film "American Courtesans" won the huminarity award, The Associated Press STILL ignores sex workers, and they promote stigma and violence towards us.
The stigma and hatred forces our youth into the sex industry. The US has has 2.5 million homeless kids and rather than create stable housing, access to higher education, and jobs that pay a living wage, they are funding so-called anti-trafficking NGOS at 686 million a year to stigmatize us, and these NGOs and society continue to shame and judge people who are using the only means at their disposal to survive and escape poverty. Meanwhile, these NGOs do not provide any of them with direct services for those who may want to get out of the sex worker business.
Why are Americans obsessed with finding ways to exclude those with which they find some kind of moral fault, rather including them inn the process of building communities?
