Each of us has been working in this field for many years, in a variety of ways, and together we bring over 60 years of experience to this project. We have UNLV Institutional Review Board approval to conduct this research in a safe, confidential, ethical manner. Moreover, we will be sharing the results of this research broadly: online, with the sex worker community, Desiree Alliance, students, scholars, and the public-at-large through publications.
