Old Pros is a non-profit media organization creating conditions to change the status of sex workers in society.

At Old Pros, we seek the destigmatization of sex work, where it is not illegal or shameful for consenting adults to exchange erotic services for money or other resources.

We envision a society where sex workers are free to contribute their experience and wisdom to their communities.

We seek the decrimalization of sex work, where individuals participating in sex work are not arrested and cannot be evicted, fired, or lose custody of their children because of their participation in sex work.

All people, whether they have ever participated in sex work or not, should have access to services and support to avoid exploitation, stay safe, and make choices about their own lives.

Sex workers have a right to unencumbered access to the building blocks we all need to move our lives forward. This includes access to banking and investment services, healthcare, education, legal assistance, relevant government programs, and technology platforms.

We aspire to live in a healthy, free society where everyone has access to rights and opportunities to determine their own future.

SAFE SEX Workers Study Act

#OldProProject seeks to elevate sex worker history through art, and to strengthen community networks by funding and supporting collaborative projects.

Our goal is to change the stories that are told about sex workers. We believe that by reclaiming our place in history, we can claim our human rights for generations past, present, and future.

Margo St. James, who founded the prostitutes’ rights organization COYOTE (Call Off Your Old Tired Ethics), and later, the St. James Infirmary, left her body on January 11, 2021.

We are a group of Margo’s friends, colleagues, and a collective of supporters who produced a virtual international tribute event.
