Respect QLD | Support for Queensland sex workers

Our vision is for sex work to be recognised as work and as such fully decriminalised.

We envisage a society where we as sex workers have equal status in society and are free to pursue our occupation safely, on our own terms without fear of criminalisation, stigma or discrimination.

Coronavirus and sex work

“I also worry that fear of other such viruses will lead to increased whorephobia, that sex workers will become a scapegoat in a society obsessed with sanitation.”
