2012 - Sex Workers Freedom Festival Held in Kolkata, India (alternative IAC)

Sex workers were excluded from attending the 2012 International AIDS Conference in Washington, USA, due to restrictive US immigration policies. Instead APNSW, supported by NSWP, held an alternative event titled the Sex Workers' Freedom Festival in Kolkata, India. Sex workers from over 40 countries took part in five days of discussions, workshops, protests, arts based advocacy and a video live-link to the official conference.
