Proceeds from this event will go towards Glits Inc., and will help queer and trans sex workers obtain direct services such as housing, healthcare and counseling. We will also be fundraising for Glits’ World Pr*de event in June. This event will mark the first time a sex work focused organization has been allowed to appear in the march, so we hope this event will allow us to throw the best debut possible, and raise as much money and awareness for trans and queer sex workers in the coming months.
