GLASGOW: Sex worker-only get together, support, discussion, and know your rights

Sex Worker Open University, SCOT-PEP and Umbrella Lane are holding a social event where sex workers (or anyone selling or trading sex, no matter how you self-describe) can meet other workers, learn about the different sex worker-led organisations operating in Scotland, and share information and tips on health, safety and the law.

The event will be held at a venue near Kinning Park Subway Station in Glasgow on Wednesday, 7th of September, between 1pm and 6pm. Free tea, coffee, cakes and condoms!
