What are some challenges to finding housing that accommodates the needs of a sex worker?
Many service providers stop providing services to trans folks who are over than 24, and since Black and Brown Trans sex workers often are so isolated some don't hear about these services until they are in their early 20s and they age out while waiting on a never ending voucher list. Many who are able to get these services are faced with limits such as curfews, no guest policies, cameras, and nightly bed checks. Often times Trans sex workers travel in groups and sometimes folks don't want to stay at a new place by themselves (and for good reason, we need to keep eachother safe). When we've worked with our networks on short term housing we've often tried to find spaces that would accommodate more than one person for this reason.
