Negotiating Sex Work

Lalani Yasmin

University of Minnesota Press

Using interview data collected from sex worker activists and their stakeholders in Iquitos, Peru, Yasmin Lalani uses a gender relations framework to describe the social and political elements of sex worker NGOs that emerged in response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. She demonstrates how sex workers’ community-building and organizing efforts positioned them as actors with social agency who could protect themselves and their clients against HIV and sexually transmitted infections.
