A short film on the way different laws and policing practices, including those aimed at “trafficking,” affect sex workers and how they undermine HIV programmes for sex workers. This film was shown at the Asia and the Pacific Regional Consultation on HIV and sex work held in Pattaya in October, 2010.
Not all sex workers are forced into prostitution. We all have the right to carry condoms, prostitute or otherwise. Sexual health is a human right. I hope this video highlights some of the complex issues revolving around sex work, and debunks some misconceptions.
