On Tuesday 21st October the Northern Ireland Assembly voted to criminalise the purchase of sex, despite independent research showing only 2% of sex workers supported this move and 61% thought it would make them less safe. We can expect this new law to come into force next year.
Many sex workers were devastated by this news and are now worried about the future. We are organising a series of informal meetings where sex workers can discuss this and make plans for the future. The first is 8pm on Wednesday 29th October 2014. The format will be casual meet up for coffee, address on request. Flyer here: http://uglymugs.ie/wp-content/uploads/belfast-coffee-evening.pdf
