Denial of Service: Sex Workers Confront Dr. Eric Goosby and Protest the Anti-Prostitution Pledge

The Global Network of Sex Work Projects (NSWP) was a vocal and visible presence at the 2010 International AIDS Conference (IAC) in Vienna, Austria this year. NSWP members challenged both policy makers and funding agencies to break with the status quo, which perpetuates institutional violence and violation of sex worker’s human rights that lead to a higher rates of HIV infection and death. Read the Global Network post “Denial of Service” for more.

On Tuesday, July 20th, NSWP organized sex workers and allies to disrupt a speech by United States Global AIDS Coordinator Dr. Eric Goosby to demand justice for sex workers harmed by PEPFAR’s discriminatory anti-prostitution loyalty oath.

I highly recommend listening to Macklean Kyomya (WONETHA-Uganda) minutes 1:00 and on.
