Seeking Global Consultant for Briefing Paper on Homophobia and Transphobia

MSMGF, in collaboration with The Global Network of Sex Worker Projects (NSWP), is seeking to appoint a Global Consultant to lead the development of a Briefing Paper, with accompanying Community Guide, on the homophobia and transphobia experienced by sex workers who are also part of the LGBT community.

Homophobia and transphobia exist at structural, institutional and societal levels and is underpinned by punitive laws, policies and practices that exacerbate the stigma, discrimination and social exclusion experienced by sex workers and LGBT people. Discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity adds to and intensifies the discrimination experienced by all sex workers, leading to increased levels of violence, human rights abuses, further limiting access to services and justice.

Please see the full Terms of Reference for the position.
