HOOK (Hustlers Out On Kapitalism) is a collective of sex worker activists in the Bay Area working on various community projects that have a strong focus on addressing issues experienced by – and resources catering to the needs of – people of color and LGBT/queer individuals who work within the sex industry. The HOOK Collective is committed to bringing a fuller picture to the conversation about race, class and gender regarding “sex work” within the context of activism, academia and culture.
Drawing from the diverse pool of experiences lived by the members of the HOOK Collective, and through a shared desire for progress, we strive to create safe, supportive, healing spaces defined by a feminist, harm reduction, anti-oppression oriented framework. In these spaces, we hope to provide a place where individuals in the sex industry and activist circles can inspire new dialogue, build bridges, and expand the understanding and connections of ourselves to each other, all fighting for survival, safety, and support within the sex industry!
We hold our meetings in San Francisco! If you would like more information about our meetings, please email us at HOOK.Collective@gmail.com and put ‘Meetings’ in the header.
