This year marks 50 years since the Stonewall riots, widely considered to be the start of the modern gay rights movement. Two young, transgender sex workers named Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera has been credited with throwing the rock that started the riot.
Since then, the gay rights movement has fought for better rights and protection under the law for its people. Many countries have seen rights and opportunities impossible to imagine 50 years ago. Sex workers don’t always have the same rights and protection, and often find themselves without legal protection or even in conflict with the law.
Despite having a central role in the riots, Rivera and other sex workers found that they had to fight to get their voices heard, sometimes in a very physical and literal sense.
So how have sex workers contributed to the LGBT rights movement, and what is the current political and legal situation for Sex workers in Norway? Are sex worker rights LGBTIQ+ rights? And if so, has the gay right movement left the sex workers behind?
