NZAF slammed over ‘deeply hated’ honouree – New Zealand Daily News

A notable advocate for sex worker rights is refusing a NZ AIDS Foundation Life Membership, because a controversial and “deeply hated” transgender prostitutes’ outreach worker is also being honoured.

Christchurch-based NZ Prostitutes Collective staff member Anna Reed received a letter from the NZAF saying that she was to be bestowed with Life Membership for her years of work training volunteers, advocating for HIV prevention and involvement with organisations such as the AIDS Memorial Quilt and the Needle Exchange programme.
