SUPPORT OUR NEXT EVENT:
Sex Workers take over social media on International Whores' Day.


INTERNATIONAL WHORES' DAY 2020 NYC DIGITAL RALLY 
June 2, 2020 marks the 45th International Whores’ Day, a global event that started in Lyon, France in 1975 when over 100 sex workers protested  the violence and police brutality targeting their livelihood.

Kink Out is supporting the Sex Worker-led social media takeover to stage the IWD NYC Digital Rally, an online event and social media takeover, protesting the police violence, racism, and stigma-based discrimination that still targets our working communities.

Sex Workers:
We need your support, voices, and amplification to help stage the biggest ever gathering of sex workers and our allies. We invite sex workers worldwide to join the rally by flooding social media. Wear RED, tag #InternationalWhoresDay2020, and share your stories of resilience and survival during this global pandemic. We celebrate the strength of our intersectional sex working communities that continually provide mutual aid to one another.

Allies:
We cannot win this fight without you. Donating and showing up are the most impactful things you can do to build a future that is safe and empowering for sex workers. Please show up in RED, tell the world why you support sex workers, and tag #RespectSexWorkers and #InternationalWhoresDay2020.

Join us on this historic day!
