Research Participants Needed: Women of Colour in the Indoor Sex Industry

Are you a woman or identify as one for work? 

Do you identify as Indigenous or as visible minority? 

Do you work independent in-call or out-call or for an escort agency in Canada? 

Do you want to share your experience, stories and perspectives as a woman of colour working in the indoor sex industry? 

I would like to invite women of colour across Canada who are involved in the indoor sex industry to participate in my PhD research, co-supervised by Professors Diana Young and Lara Karaian.

The purpose of this research is to give racialized sex workers a voice on the legal and regulatory issues surrounding the sex industry and debunk myths about racialized women’s involvement in the sex industry.

Interviews will be conducted in person or via Skype. All interviews are confidential. You will receive an honorarium of $75.00 for your time and knowledge.

To participate in this study please contact Menaka Raguparan:
