Happy International Sex Worker’s Day!

On June 2nd we celebrate International Sex Worker Day, which is a day dedicated to improving conditions for sex workers and ending the stigmas against them. We work with amazing influencers every day, and we want to say THANK YOU! Sex workers aren’t appreciated enough, and it’s a career that requires great strength and pride in what you do. Today there are no stigmas, only celebration!


The History of International Sex Worker Day

In the 1970s, French sex workers were under intense pressure. The police did not allow sex workers to work publicly and their presence had to be a secret. Because of this, sex workers faced diminished protection which led to increased incidents of harassment and violence. In 1975, two female sex workers were murdered and when the government still refused to put safeguards in place, sex workers in Lyon flooded the Saint-Nizier church in rue de Brest and went on strike. They sang protest songs and demanded not only better working conditions, but also an end to the stigma against them.

They protested for eight days, and those days began an international movement for sex workers’ rights.

To those women, and the spectacular group of sex workers we work with today, we say thank you for your strength, fortitude, and spirit. We are proud to work with you and proud to share your stories.
