Sex Work and Human Rights

Giant Girls go to India!

Please Support Korean Sex Workers

Giant Girls – Network for Sexworkers’ Rights (성노동자권리모임 GG) is currently raising funds to send up to three of their members to the Sex Worker Freedom Festival aka the Alternative International AIDS Conference (IAC 2012 Kolkata). At the time of writing, their fundraiser has reached nearly 80% of their target of 3,000,000 KRW (approx. US$2,620). Please consider a donation towards their fundraiser to ensure the participation of Korean sex workers at the Sex Worker Freedom Festival.

Option A – Donate via SocialFunch (by July 12th!)

If you live in South Korea, you can donate via SocialFunch until Thursday, July 12th. The website is in Korean only but I can guide you through the process. (see instructions below) Note: to use SocialFunch, you will need a Korean debit or credit card and a national ID or Alien Registration Card number. If you are a non-permanent resident in Korea without a Korean ID, please choose option B.

Option B – Donate via bank transfer

If you live outside of Korea or do not have a Korean ID, you can donate via (international) bank transfer.
