CLiCK CAST

By CLiCK.scot
The needs of women in the sex industry have frequently been overlooked during the coronavirus pandemic. CLiCK CAST is a podcast by CLiCK.scot – a partnership of organisations providing support to women with lived experience of selling or exchanging sex or sexual images. Each month, hosts Anna and Shannon hear from women and support services to find out more about women’s needs during the pandemic, and what women would like to see change as Scotland learns to live alongside coronavirus.

CLiCK Digital Magazine
In June 2020, we began CLiCK Magazine (www.clickmagazine.online)  – an online platform for women with lived experience of selling or exchanging sex or images to make their voices heard during the coronavirus pandemic. Women’s needs and experiences were explored through a monthly podcast series (CLiCK Cast), an anonymous survey platform (RISE), a wellbeing arts-based project exploring self-care (Together, Alone) and a dedicated space for women to tell parts of their story (Your Voice). We have worked alongside women to transform this platform into a striking digital magazine which clearly outlines what women want decision makers and support services to know about their needs right now and what they want to see change in the short and long term.
