In this episode of Newsmakers DropIn social worker Ashanti Berrend shares her knowledge on the reality of sex workers in Luxembourg.
A Red Cross dispensary for sex workers, DropIn provides safe, neutral, and anonymous space and medical, social and psychological support. Although sex work is officially legal in Luxembourg and a 2018 bill was introduced to provide a better legal framework, it remains a grey area.
“It’s hard because even though it’s legal you can’t really declare yourself as a sex worker. You don’t have health insurance, you don’t have social security,” says Ashanti.
Tune in on Spotify to find out more about sex work in Luxembourg including an exit programme by DropIn helping those who want to transition out of sex work.
