Prostitutes Protection Act: Germany (on Sex Worker Rights Day)

Sex Workers’ Rights Day: Germany’s “Prostitutes Protection Act”.

Emy, Nikki, and Mell talk about the “Prostitutes Protection Act” and the effect it will have on their lives, and the lives of other sex workers who are working in Germany.

For the International Sex Workers’ Rights Day, Transgender Europe are supporting our partner organisation Trans*sexworks, based in Berlin, to raise awareness about a new law that comes into action in July 2017. The law will severely undermine many of sex workers’ fundamental rights.
