We work with all identities in Sex Work: Men, Women and Transgender, LGBT organization leaders and TS, sex work activists (Executives). We work with clients in the defense and promotion of Human Rights. We work with the children of the community of sex workers in social events eg chocolate sharing at Christmas
How are sex workers involved in your organisation?: 
People who are sex workers are involved in all our activities.
Which of NSWP priority areas does your organisation work on?: 
Oppose the criminalisation and other legal oppression of sex work and support its recognition as work
Advocate for universal access to health services, including primary health care, HIV and sexual and reproductive health services
Speak out about violence against sex workers, including violence from police, institutions, clients, and intimate partners, while challenging the myth that sex work is inherently gender-based violence
Challenge stigma and discrimination against sex workers, their families and partners, and others involved in sex work
Advocate for the economic empowerment and social inclusion of sex workers as sex workers
What are the two main challenges that the sex workers you work with face: 
The main challenge for everyone is the creation of safe areas of sex work, which is asking the Metropolitan Municipality of Lima, to determine locations and times where they can work, that way it would eradicate violence against our communities that are committed by the Serenazgo and National Police of Peru. The other major challenge is the recognition of sex work. Another problem is related to the issue of health, everything is focused on HIV, and what we are betting is a comprehensive health care quality. Empower the community of sex work in their rights.
Describe other areas of your work: 
We are an organization of labour identities but we are part of the Community, Trans, Gay and Bisexual Men .. We are working for the recognition of the Law of Gender Identity, where there is no discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. For accessibility to education in Trans Community study centers with no discrimination
