This week, we get to speak with Chad, a Texas-based male escort and friend of mine. He shares with us his perspective on sex work being healing in two directions, both for him and his clients. We also talk extensively about STIs and PrEP. We talk about stigma of various kinds revolving around sex and sex work and how they can crop up in non-profit settings, even when the organizations mission is to serve sex workers. **TW: Sexual Assault and Suicide** Things We Talk About: PrEP Resources: https://heymistr.com/ https://www.nurx.com/prep/ https://www.hiv.gov/federal-response/ending-the-hiv-epid ..read more
