#SexWorkersRightsAreHumanRights: Happy Sex Worker Pride Day!



#SexWorkersRightsAreHumanRights โœŠ๐Ÿป Happy Sex Worker Pride Day!๐Ÿ’–


๐Ÿ“Sex Worker Pride Day is observed annually on 14th September to honor the sex workers' community, celebrate their achievements and share stories of sex workers' self-determination. We salute the tireless efforts of colleagues everywhere to secure rights and safety for all sex workers.


๐ŸŒŸ To put light on the exploitation they often face due to their occupation, today and every day, we work in solidarity with #sexworkers & their ongoing struggles for rights & safety.


To #DecriminalizeSexWork means to recognize that #SexWorkIsWork and protect the rights of sex workers through #laborlaw, and workplace health and safety regulations, including equal support in times such as the Covid-19 pandemic.


๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป When sex work is decriminalized, sex workers can push for safer working conditions and use the justice system to seek remedy for discrimination and abuse!


#WeAreManushyan โ™พ Equal Human Beings


โœŠ Sex workers, including sex workers facing intersectional forms of discrimination, such as women, indigenous peoples, ethnic minorities or LGBTIQ+ persons are Equal Human Beings with equal rights! ๐Ÿคโœจ
