It is our objective to recognise that by providing education, information and support to sex workers, sex workers will be effectively resourced as safer sex educators to pass on those educational benefits to the larger general population.
‘Sex Work is Work’ and ‘Sex Worker Rights are Human Rights’
Respect Inc is a non-profit, peer-based organisation focused on protecting and promoting the rights, health & wellbeing of Queensland sex workers. We are a sex worker rights-positive and rights-focused community organisation. All of our Management Committee, Volunteers and Staff are current or former sex workers.
Hi I’m Ivy Belle, I was a North Brissie privately sex worker for 4 years.
This will be my second year on the Respect Inc committee, and I’ve already been the secretary for a while, learning crazy amounts about Respect Inc. This year I’ve been elected as the Vice-Chair and I’m sure I will learn a ton.
Laws in Queensland criminalise essential safety strategies, forcing sex workers to choose between working safely or legally.
We are Queensland sex workers united to provide a voice for sex worker issues to improve the rights of
our peers to workplace health and safety.
