Sex Worker Rights are LGBTQ Rights!

This past Sunday, SWOP Denver marched in the annual Denver Pridefest parade! We had about 15 sex workers and allies show up for the march. While we would like to strongly state that we did not feel comfortable with the law enforcement presence at the parade, we also want to state that we were very  happy to be included in the parade and glad that the Center here in Colorado recognizes the intersections between LGBTQ rights and sex worker rights.
