Campagne contre le tourisme sexuel
Sex Workers and the Gay Community (2013): Why then the opprobrium that so many gays have against male sex workers?

I have never encountered a pimp for male sex workers anywhere in the world.

- Male sex workers' support program stronger than ever (2012): When Matthew Taylor founded HUSTLE: Men on the Move in Vancouver in 2007, it was one of the few outreach organizations in Canada to work specifically with men in the sex industry, providing peer support, safer-sex materials, nutrition, harm reduction and needle exchanges to street-level sex workers and street-involved youth. There are still only a handful of male-specific support services that exist across the country.
