Media & PR

The media amplifies our voice and vision to reduce stigma around sex work in Scotland. We welcome the powerful impact of the press and media to open our conversation to the wider public.

 

The media is essential in educating the wider public about moving beyond binary views on sex work, and thus in driving our vision. We are media trained and always looking for opportunities to engage with the press. We are able to provide insights from our Sex Worker community spokespeople about relevant policies and lived-experience stories, with total anonymity assured upon request.
