As the COVID-19 public health crisis began to affect sex workers in the US, the Molly House Project became a hub of activity as a virtual drop-in space and community relief fund. Last year, our bi-weekly meetings explored finances, dating, healthcare, getting started in the industry, safety, and much more. This year we've been delving deeper into the issues impacting our community and working to create more resources. We’ve also set new goals for the year — keep an eye out for updates about our fundraiser, community partnerships, volunteer opportunities, and a new Signal group.
We're looking forward to continuing to connect with other organizations and with men and masc of center folks in the industry worldwide.

What We've Been Up To
We kicked off 2022 chatting with American physician and researcher Dr. David Malebranche about PrEP access for sex workers. He also touched on PrEP for trans men and transmasc folks, HIV in the Black community, and new guidelines that make testing and medication mandatory preventative medical procedures. Maddame Seduction, Sir Sango, and Roman Blck joined us in February to talk about Black history, experience, and activism and sex worker rights movement. And in March, Hacking//Hustling taught us about the differences between privacy and security, not only while doing our work but when using the internet in general.
Tell us about your health-related needs! Molly House Project will use this info to develop our resource offerings and to inform the conversations we have with healthcare providers and other medical professionals. (For trans men, transmasc, and non-binary/genderqueer folks in the sex trade industry ONLY.)
Adult film performer and sex educator King Noire is joining us for a talk about his experience, racism in the industry, bringing creativity into his work, and community organizing. (For Black men, transmasc, and queer masculine of center folks in the sex trade industry ONLY.)
What do you do when you've been stiffed by your date, or worse? Who do you talk to? What help is there? Join us for a talk about our experiences with bad dates, prevention and harm reduction, and solutions we can create together for the future. (For men, transmasc, non-binary/genderqueer, and queer masculine of center folks in the sex trade industry ONLY.
In the News
"Ed Buck, once a fixture of West Hollywood’s political scene, was sentenced Thursday to 30 years in prison for drug and sex crimes that included providing lethal doses of methamphetamine to two men. To the outside world, Buck was a champion of causes such as fur bans and AIDS awareness, and a donor to Democratic officeholders. But behind the walls of his Laurel Avenue apartment was a nightmare."
