Nottingham/East Midlands Sex Workers Monthly Social
« on: 19 June 2018, 04:37:50 pm »
Hi Everyone,

As some of you may be aware, SWARM (the Sex Workers Advocacy and Resistance Movement) has brand new Midlands branch under the SWARM (red) Umbrella. Right now we are primarily based in Nottingham, but looking to expand across the Midlands as our numbers grow.

We held our first social gathering in Nottingham at the end of May, where it was noted that we really ought to make a post on SAAFE to let the local sex worker community aware of our new presence here in the Midlands.

So far as a new movement we are meeting once a month on the last Tuesday of every month, from 7:30-9:30pm. This is a safe, sex workers only space, welcoming anyone working in the industry of any gender and from all walks of life.

Tea, coffee, soft drinks, cakes, crisps, biscuits and other snack refreshments provided. This is simply an open, non-judgmental, non-competitive space for fellow workers to have a chat with others in the industry and make friends in what can be a very isolating profession.

Our next gathering is next week, Tuesday 26th June, from 7:30-9:30pm - get in touch for full address details.

Our full mission statement, as published on our Facebook page, reads as follows:
SWARM Midlands is a sex worker lead organisation which exists primarily to provide a safe, non-competitive space where sex-workers of all types can meet up and socialise, with the understanding that sex work is often an isolating profession.
  We have no religious or political affiliations and welcome sex workers from all walks of life.
  SWARM Midlands supports and campaigns for the full decriminalisation of sex work, understanding this to be an essential step towards enabling safe working conditions and the ability to assert our human and labour rights.   
  SWARM Midlands welcomes sex workers of all genders, and stands against racism, sexism, classism, fascism, homophobia, transphobia and religious intolerance.   

If you would like to join us for a cup of tea or coffee and a chat with others in the profession, please do get in touch, and we hope to see you on the last Tuesday of each month!

Thanks,
Jessica and Charley xx

I'd be interested in a daytime meeting, cant get back at night as relying on trains from East Mids area.

We don't have any daytime plans any time soon, but if you get in touch with your location we may be able to figure out how you could make it to our regular meet ups? We finish at 9:30 which isn't that late?

Hi everyone!

It's the third SWARM Midlands monthly social for sex workers coming up on Tuesday 24th of July (a week earlier than usual this month). We're really looking forward to seeing everyone and hopefully some new faces too :-) After this, we will return to meeting on the last Tuesday of the month every month.

The last two meetings have been really fun, we hope this new community will continue to grow and be a friendly, safe support network in this industry. For more info and location details please email SWARMMidlands@protonmail.com, reply to this message or text/ring 07923454840.

We hope to see you there for a cuppa and cake! :-)

Hi all, sorry,  we posted on our social media but failed to post here. SWARM Midlands socials are on hiatus until 2019, there will not be a meeting tonight. We will still be doing other things eg activism and workshops, but social will not start again until next year. Thanks all for your support!

Or nearer to Nothampton in the future but maybe not too close as I keep a low profile. xx
I consider it a badge of honour not to advertise on Adultwork...
