The internet is becoming increasingly unfriendly to discussions around sex and gender. Red Light Reader recognize that the promotion of human rights is dependent on a mindful remembrance of history and the careful analysis of different intersections of discrimination & disadvantage harm the most vulnerable people in a society.
One of our most important goals is to directly benefit incarcerated and criminalized sex workers. We recognize that creating systems of support and providing resources promoting financial stability are some of the most effective ways at protecting those in the sex trade. As content creators, RLR acts as a platform for other activists and organizations to reach a more diverse audience, building coalitions and promoting human rights around the world.
Through your donations you can DIRECTLY impact these people's lives.
We HIGHLY encourage you to purchase your books from Bluestockings - a volunteer-powered and collectively-owned radical bookstore, fair trade cafe, and activist center in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
