The Erotic Service Providers Legal Education and Research Project (ESPLERP – http://esplerp.org) – San Francisco’s sex worker group, has been picked as a supporting beneficiary of the Infamous Folsom Street Events. The historical multi annual events makes leather with a cause that raises hundreds of thousands of dollars each year to share between HIV/AIDS, LGBT Rights and homeless groups will now add sex worker rights to their roster as a beneficiary.

Our group is the only New Beneficiary for 2017 so we really honored and want to do a good job at recruiting our fair share of the required volunteers who run these all volunteer events.
