Letter to myself, a sex worker in Bulawayo: 

What kind of a creature are you?

You are given different names

You are labelled a dog, bitch, whore

And yet you survive.

You chose your career just like anyone working

You are paid for your services just like anyone working

You dress according to your work just like anyone working

You have an office to work from just like anyone working

You are found in streets, night clubs, pubs, hotels

By those who call you names

It takes two to tango.

I respect you sex worker

They say you are not educated and yet you are

You know how to use your gold mine

How to maintain it

You condomise

Yet those who are educated want it dry

You are a pleasure engineer

You give pleasure to those who are sexually starved

You are a heroine because you stand and fight for your rights

I respect the way you stand up for yourself

And the way you respect and love your work

Forward with your work and who you are

Stand up and shout

You are special

You have the right to work just like anyone else

You are a human being who needs to be protected just like anyone else

You are someone unique

You are a sex worker!

Special thanks to The Sexual Rights Centre for sharing this with us.
