Supporters are encouraged to wear red to the event where they will hear from speakers from groups including the Scarlet Alliance, Sex Workers Outreach Project (SWOP) NSW, the Asian Migrant Sex Worker Advisory Group and Pride in Protest after a Welcome to Country by Uncle Graham Simms, AKA Nana Miss Koori. Legislation before the Parliament – The groups have been consulting closely with Sydney MP Alex Greenwich who has included reforms designed to protect sex workers and their associates from discrimination in his Equality Legislation Amendment (LGBTIQA+) Bill. In the second reading of the bill in the NSW Parliament in August, Greenwich noted that “anti-discrimination laws aim to protect us from discrimination, bigotry, inequity, harassment, vilification, and violence, and ensure that we can live with dignity and peace.”
