Two Wednesdays a month, Tampa Bay sex worker support groups will hold Zoom meetings to discuss what kind of support they can provide for local disabled sex workers.

The Sex Worker Solidarity Network (SWSN) and The Sex Workers Outreach Project (SWOP) Tampa Bay will host the events on the first and third Wednesdays of every month.

For security’s sake, they ask that sex workers who want to join the meetings email [email protected] in order to be permitted to join.

SWSN was formed by sex workers of all backgrounds in Tampa Bay to provide safer spaces and resources for each other. It is a queer sex worker-led collective, in solidarity with all forms of liberation.

SWOP Tampa Bay is the local chapter of a national social justice network dedicated to the fundamental human rights of people involved in the sex trade and their communities, focusing on ending violence and stigma through education and advocacy.
