Announcing the Sex Worker Freedom Festival: the alternative International AIDS
Conference 2012 event for sex workers and allies.
21 to 27 July 2012 | Swabhumi, Kolkata, India.
US government travel restrictions for sex workers mean that many of us will not be
able, or will not want to go to the IAC in Washington this year. The Sex Worker
Freedom Festival is an alternative event for sex workers and our allies to protest
our exclusion and ensure the voices of those excluded are heard in Washington.
The festival programme will focus on freedoms that we are all entitled to:
· Freedom of movement and to migrate;
· Freedom to access quality health services;
· Freedom to work and choose occupation;
· Freedom to associate and unionise;
· Freedom to be protected by the law;
· Freedom from abuse and violence; and
· Freedom from stigma and discrimination.
Working with 9.5 hour time difference between Kolkata & Washington
Kolkata programming will start at 12.30 and run through to 22.30 to provide a 5 hour
overlap with conference sessions and Global Village activities in Washington. We
will have video linking between Kolkata and Washington conference sessions and the
Registration for the Sex Worker Freedom Festival will open on 2 April 2012 and close
on 30 June 2012. Registration forms will be available on the NSWP website.

The call for activity proposals (policy discussions, workshops, presentations,

apply for an NSWP scholarship to support their participation. The registration,
proposal submission and scholarship application form will be available on the NSWP

conference organisers if you want to present your abstract in Kolkata, IAC abstract
