NSWP Smart Guide AIDS2010
From 18-23 July 2010, the 18th International AIDS Conference took place in Vienna, Austria - with a strong presence and visibility of sex workers. Through a number of booths, a big networking zone, presentations, film screenings and performances, on panels, in plenary and at protests - and with the ever present red umbrella - sex workers and their allies demanded that funders, policy makers, researchers, and other organisations recognise and support the human rights of sex workers.
To those of you who were present, the "Smart Sex Workers Guide" comes as a memory and summary of the NSWP pre-meeting for sex workers and allies and the sex work related activities at the conference. To those who could not attend, we hope this will be an informative overview and useful tool for further strategising.
Congratulations to all those who helped to make AIDS2010 a powerful political moment in the history of sex worker rights!
