True Colours Under the Red Umbrella

Sex workers have always been part of the LGBTQI+ movement and LGBTQI+ people are overrepresented in the sex worker population. Despite this, sex workers are often excluded from the LGBTQI+ community and the fight for human rights. While homosexual and bisexual people have seen big improvements to their legal rights, sex workers have been left behind and sex work is still criminalised in most countries today.

What is the situation for sex workers facing various forms of criminalisation? How do the multiple stigmas of being a sex worker and migrant and/or LGBTQI+ affect sex workers’ access to services, health and justice? What can the movement for sex worker rights learn from the LGBTQI+ movement which has won so many victories in the past decades? And how can LGBTQI+ people and organisations be true allies to sex workers? A panel of sex workers discuss the current situation for sex workers, with a focus on LGBTQI+ sex workers, migrant sex workers, and the effects of the Swedish model.
