I am a boardmember of RFSU Stockholm, a part of the team behind The Free Relationship Group, and a poly-political activist. My mission is the modernization of family law, securing the right to form a chosen family constellation without being excluded from the social security system, in case it transcends the norm of two.

14:00 - 16:00 #AreWeIncluded? Room L7
Sex workers have always been part of the LGBTQI+ movement and LGBTQI+ people are over-represented in the sex worker population. Despite this, sex workers are often excluded from the LGBTQI+ community and the fight for human rights. How do the multiple stigmas of being a sex worker and migrant and/or LGBTQI+ affect sex workers’ access to services, health and justice?
A panel of sex workers discuss the current situation in Sweden with a focus on LGBTQI+ and migrant sex workers, and the effects of the Swedish model together with sociologist researcher Niina Vuolajärvi and ICRSE’s program officer Sabrina Sanchez. Organised by Red Umbrella Sweden; a Swedish organisation, advocating for the rights, safety, justice and self determination of sex workers.

This is the first public presentation of Andy’s Master’s thesis called “ (dark ecriture!)
(pain! terror! suffering! death!)
