Haymarket Pole Collective
Haymarket Pole Collective is a grassroots organization fighting for safer and more equitable home and workspaces for Black, brown, Indigenous, and or transgender sex workers and sex workers of color in Oregon.
Bottom Line for Portland
We ask for local adult business’ solidarity in ongoing education and policy transparency in regards to race and gender. In addition, Haymarket Pole Collective offers food assistance, legal referrals, STI testing, Trimet/Hop passes, Bi-annual microgrants, giveaways, holiday toy drives, diaper drives, menstrual supplies, harm reduction, safer sex supplies, and covid supplies.
“I know I get to be too much with my million anxious questions, but I was never made to feel like I was a burden by anyone here. The love and acceptance and just amazing attitude in everyone involved was beautiful and if you're able, donate. Know that each cent you give goes directly into the hands of people who need it, know that you will literally be changing someone's life for the better.”
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Within the prolific history of labor organization in the adult entertainment industry, there still has been a critical neglect and care for Black, Indigenous, People of Color, and transgender sex workers.
Haymarket Pole Collective is a collection of autonomous sex workers, whose aim is to protect and support vulnerable peoples who are often neglected in traditional labor organizing by demanding the prioritization of Black, Indigenous, People of Color, and transgender sex workers.
In June 2020, we spearheaded the PDXStripperStrike, a movement centered in the improvement of fair working conditions, contracting comprehension, and scheduling practices for dancers in the Portland Metro Area.
