Dear readers,

It is with great sadness that I must put an end to SexWorkHalifax.ca. After my move to Montreal I had hoped to keep up with publication but other projects got in the way.

I would like to take the time to thank everyone who had a part in creating the website and its content. I sincerely believe that sex work is something that should be researched, covered and discussed on a higher level.

SexWorkHalifax may return eventually. But for now, this is a farewell before a long – or short – hiatus.

Feel free to contact me for any stories, opportunities, questions or comments.

Life on the streets has changed. Sex work hasn’t.

Jul 21, 11 Life on the streets has changed. Sex work hasn’t.

 

Tracy, 46, worked the streets of Halifax and the strip clubs of Toronto for 15 years to survive and feed her drug addiction. She knows the streets, the girls and the johns who shape the world of sex work in the port city. Now, she looks at how much things have changed since she left the scene two years ago.

Sex Work Halifax – Tracy by mickjcote

The map below shows the area which used to be known as “the stroll,” the streets on which sex workers often found their clients. Halifax Regional Police have also set boundaries within which sex workers arrested for solicitation or prostitution-related offences are forbidden from visiting until court decisions are made.

Appeals are sometimes granted to sex workers to access their workplace, medical centres or their own residences.

*Please note: the boundaries and the stroll showed here often change. The blue line, representing the stroll, was determined by talking to sex workers. The red lines, representing the boundaries in both Dartmouth and Halifax, were confirmed by Halifax Regional Police on August 10, 2011.
