St. James Infirmary

2019 YBCA 100 Honoree

St. James Infirmary is a peer-based occupational health and safety clinic for sex workers of all genders. They meet the needs of people engaged in the sex trade through advocacy, direct services, and social justice. St. James Infirmary challenges the conventional health care model that divides patients and providers and fosters unhealthy power dynamics. Our peer-based model creates a safe, trusting, honest environment in which to provide services, and empowers our community to define our own well-being.
