Philadelphia Sex Worker Relief Fund

Mutual Aid

Sex workers who do in-person work are facing a near or complete loss of income as they try to physically distance and self-isolate in response to COVID-19. The venues where they work such as strip clubs, massage parlors and dungeons are shut down. Street-based workers are working with a rapidly shrinking pool of clients as people are getting sick, self-isolating or dealing with a loss of income; they report that their work has “almost completely dried up”. Additionally, street based workers are reporting increased harassment by police in the guise of them “breaking quarantine”. Others who rely on meeting clients traveling to the city for conventions or other events have had dates cancelled or are separating themselves from clients and hotels for the sake of their own and communal safety. Adult performers cannot create content with new work partners.
