#SexWorkersRightsAreHumanRights: Happy Sex Worker Pride Day!



#SexWorkersRightsAreHumanRights ✊🏻 Happy Sex Worker Pride Day!💖


📍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.


🌟 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.


👉🏻 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 ♾ Equal Human Beings


✊ 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! 🤍✨
