International Sex Workers Day June 2, 2021

Every year the Triple X Workers Solidarity Association host a Red Umbrella march to mark this day. We are hoping to see that event happen again soon but look forward to seeing if there is a virtual event in it’s place.

International Sex Workers’ Day is observed annually on June 2 of each year, honors sex workers and recognizes their often unhealthy working conditions. The event commemorates the occupation of Église Saint-Nizier in Lyon by more than a hundred sex workers on June 2, 1975 to draw attention to their inhumane working conditions. It has been celebrated annually since 1976. In German, it is known as Hurentag (Whore’s Day). In Spanish-speaking countries, it is the Día Internacional de la Trabajadora Sexual, the International Day of the Sex Worker.
