Vancouver client of sex workers speaks out against federal law despite risk of being prosecuted

Vancouver client of sex workers speaks out against federal law despite risk of being prosecuted | Sex Work | Scoop.it

Patrick Clark doesn’t fit the profile of a typical sex-trade activist. Not only is he male, he was born with cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair.


His impaired muscle coordination and unusual movements clearly indicate that he’s living with a serious disability—a product of brain damage that occurred when or just after he was born.


Yet Clark’s mobility issues didn’t stop him from joining the third annual Red Umbrella March on June 13 in downtown Vancouver. Red umbrellas have become the international symbol of sex workers’ solidarity since being adopted as an icon by Venice prostitutes in 2001.


In the eyes of the federal Conservative government, Clark is a criminal because he occasionally pays to have sex.

Sex work is a game of risk, repeated outings and marginalisation

Sex work is a game of risk, repeated outings and marginalisation | Sex Work | Scoop.it

The discrimination I face, both because of my work and as an activist, are compounded in complex ways by the fact that I am both queer and a sex worker. Yet each is distinctly different and cannot be compared. Queer and sex work communities are diverse and no-one should attempt to speak to collective experience – I speak to my lived experience only.
