A sex worker who was instrumental in coordinating interviews for the SPACES project passed away this weekend. I cannot name her here but would just like to acknowledge her contribution to the sex worker rights movement. She was a tough cookie and a stabilizing force in the lives of those she spent time with. She passed over to the sounds of drumming and the womens’ warrior song.
Her passing reminds us that we lose a lot of warriors along the path to social inclusion, rights and justice for sex workers. For many, the change does not come fast enough.
