I worked with NSWP- Global Network for Sex Worker Projects and APNSW- Asia Pacific Network of Sex Workers to write and curate ‘Solidarity Is Not A Crime – Sex Worker Freedom Festival’ which has now been published as the official Sex Worker Freedom Festival Report.
The Sex Worker Freedom Festival (SWFF) was an alternative International AIDS Conference 2012 event for sex workers and allies held in Kolkata in India from 21 to 26 July 2012. SWFF was an official International AIDS Conference 2012 Hub to protest the exclusion of sex workers and ensure the voices of those excluded were heard in Washington.
This publication is a snapshot of curated content outlining a significant and historical moment in the Sex Worker Rights Movement. “Solidarity Is Not A Crime” seeks to document some of the momentous achievements that took place as part of the Sex Worker Freedom Festival, Kolkata, India 2012, and the impacts from this remarkable once in a lifetime gathering.
This publication can be viewed on almost any device from iPhones and Androids, to iPads, Tablets and E-Readers. Content can be shared via social networks, or e-mailed direct, the document can also be saved as a PDF file and therefore printed.
Readers are encouraged to click on the links and share this information widely. We’ve tried to include as much as possible in the pages of ‘Solidarity Is Not A Crime’ however we couldn’t possibly include every singe tweet, facebook status update, instagram pic, youtube clip, vimeo clip and blog so we encourage you to use the publication as a starting point.
