Red Umbrella Rally

June 2nd is International Whores' Day. It is also the last day of our festival.

To celebrate we're having a Red Umbrella Rally on the steps of Parliament House in Melbourne.

Join sex workers in solidarity as we commemorate the day that started the modern international sex worker rights movement as well as remember that the struggle for sex worker rights is as relevant today as it ever was.

Sex workers in Victoria are sick and tired of being ignored as the rhetoric that that oppresses us rolls on to shape policy that entrenches stigma and discrimination.  This rally is a stand made by sex workers of Victoria and our allies- we, who believe that sex worker rights are human rights.  

Assemble at Parliament House Steps, 2pm on Saturday the 2nd of June, 2012.  

This is Vixen at Pride March this year.
