Four Corners | Transgender escorts, prostitutes, sex workers

Four Corners | Transgender escorts, prostitutes, sex workers:

“In Australia, acceptance is a long way off, and more than half report experiences of violence, social exclusion and abuse. Discrimination is systemic in the workplace, and with few decent job opportunities, many turn to prostitution, as reported by news.com.au recently.”

  1. My first two friendships with trans women were in the context of helping them with their needs after an AIDS diagnosis. I learned early on, from them, about the futility of finding a job when you’re a poor, black trans woman and how sex work was a way to survive Both sadly died as this was before effective treatments. This was around 25 years ago and the lessons I learned then have stuck with me. I do hope things improve soon it’s been a long time coming!
