I am a queer, feminist, social worker and sex worker in St. John’s who is calling on the federal government to decriminalize sex work. The current laws make the industry dangerous and I want the lives of sex workers to be valued by everyone.
Being Watched but Being Ignored
The police and government officials are watching sex workers through laws, yet they ignore our wants, needs, and our safety.
I wrote a zine about the impacts of Bill C-36 on my sex work life. The Bill makes it more dangerous because I don’t know who my clients are.
Sex Work vs. Social Work
A chronic illness led me to quit work and get into sex work because I can set my own hours. Now that my illness has improved, I am a social worker, although I have no say in my schedule. I wish I had a job with more freedom like sex work, but safer like social work.
