FIND THE LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS

My daughter became a sex worker. I thought she lost her morals! She tried to call and write, but I ignored her. Without her Uncle stepping in, I may never have seen her again.

Hear the other side of the story

For too long we have heard only one side of the story about how Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender people or Sex Workers are treated by others. Now it’s time to tell a different side of the story. For every act of intolerance, hate, and violence, there’s an act of understanding, compassion, and care. We know that tens of thousands of these stories of hope exist, from big gestures to smaller moments of support. We want to collect and share them with the world. So read our stories or share your own. Raise your voice and together we can make these stories of hope, heard.
