The red umbrella is the symbol of the international sex workers’ rights movement. Red for our strength and our pride, it represents both the literal shelter from the rain needed when working on the street, and a symbolic protection from the prejudice, discrimination and abuse still endured by sex workers everywhere – which we resist, together.
Here is a plea from National Ugly Mugs asking us all to contact our prospective MPs before the general election. We must tell them that the Swedish Model (criminilising our clients) is not the way forward. If you are worried about contacting them directly, then use this site anonymously.
