A.M.M.A.R. participated in the LGBT Pride celebration. The fellows were present at the working day held in Mar del Plata and exhibit in a debate table on the law project to regulate Autonomous Sex Work.
On Thursday 28th of June, fellows from A.M.M.A.R. La Plata and from A.M.M.A.R. Capital —Soledad Diaz and Georgina Orellano— participated in an informal lecture at the Law Faculty of Mar del Plata organized by the Human Rights Secretariat of the Province of Buenos Aires within the framework of the LGBT Pride celebration.
Among the participants were fellows from Kolina group, Patricia Britos —graduate in Political Philosophy and author of the book «Why prostitution should be a sex work?”—, lesbian organizations and students, among others.
During the meeting, the girls presented the law project to regulate sex work, explaining the reasons why female sex workers need a law, highlighting the difference between sex work and trafficking.
They also commented on the problems that have suffered the fellows around the country for the closure of nightclubs and pubs in several cities. «These measures will take us work underground and directly affect our labor supply», said Georgina Orellano.
Meanwhile, Soledad Diaz said that the activity «was very good because many young people participated supporting the initiative and expressed their concern about the tendency of many people to confuse sex work with trafficking in persons and considering workers are all of trafficking and they cannot be engaging in this activity voluntarily«.
At night, the women leaders of A.M.M.A.R. participated in the march of «Gay Pride» which left from the door of the Municipality through the entire city’s pedestrian walking. By the end, LGBT community passed the microphone to the various organizations present to express some words. Soledad Diaz representing AMMAR said «this is the first time we participate of the march, so we are very excited and celebrating with joy the recent Law of Gender Identity. But now we have to go for more, we have to go for a law regulating autonomous sex work«.
