Through Our Own Eyes is a collection of photographs and reflections in which cis and trans women living with HIV express the lived realities of HIV disclosure, stigma, and criminalization. This publication was created and exhibited in September 2018 as part of a participatory, community-based photo-voice project by CGSHE's SHAWNA Team in collaboration with Afro-Canadian Positive Network of BC, Canadian Aboriginal AIDS Network, Oak Tree Clinic at BC Women's Hospital, and YouthCO.
"My Work Should Not Cost Me My Life: The Case Against Criminalizing the Purchase of Sex in Canada" was co-authored by CGSHE, Sex Workers United Against Violence (SWUAV), and Pivot Legal Society. This policy report provides a legal analysis of AESHA results and an evaluation of the "end-demand" approach to enforcement which targets clients, but not sex workers. This report was launched at a press conference on June 3, 2014, and submitted directly to the Department of Justice prior to the introduction of Bill C-36, also known as PCEPA. An open letter (below) calling for decriminalization of sex work in Canada and signed by over 350 academics was also sent to all MPs and government leaders at this time.
