Prostitutes Sell Newspapers!

The mainstream media love to run stories about prostitutes. Whether these stories are about pimps and juveniles or violence against pros they are usually sensational and rarely do they help remedy the tragic situations they describe (other than providing johns with information about prices and locations of strolls). Peddling stereotypes while exploiting people's misery sells newspapers. Now and then, though, a gem shines through. This section carries news coverage about sex work and any laws which might affect sex work in Vancouver as well as nationally. This area of the site provides archival media coverage. These newsclippings are not necessarily up-to-date. Donations of newsclippings from your area are appreciated.
