NYC: Hundreds Demand End to Sex-Trafficking Bills, Saying They Put Sex Workers at More Risk

HeadlineJun 04, 2018

And in New York City, hundreds of sex workers and their allies rallied outside the Stonewall National Monument Saturday and marched to Washington Square Park to demand protections for sex workers on International Whores’ Day. This is Dominique.

Dominique: “Let me make this abundantly clear: Sex work is work. It is labor. It is a solution more accessible than many others. It provides immediate income to its workers across a multitude of genders, races, nationalities and abilities. When other doors are shut, sex work is open. Keep the door of internet sex work open, of safer sex work open, of consensual sex work open. Let us work. Let us live.”
