We Want You To Support Our Fight For Decriminalization & Human Rights!

When you pull up to any Strap House event you're supporting, admiring and paying Q/T Black SW for their talents! Participating in any of our shows, watching any of our talent means that you have a responsibility to support our fight for human rights! SW across the nation are organizing for decriminalization, freedom from state violence and terror. We're also running historic mutual aid efforts to show up for one another in the absence of government support. Now more than ever we need your help - it's time to pull up for us!

Wondering how to get started? We've added a special section to our site with everything you need to know about how to pull up for Black SW in your area! From local campaigns, petitions and fundraisers to rapid response + solidarity work - we're giving you everything you need to know to ride for these heaux!
 
Here's Everything You Need To Know To Support Black SW!

Support Local Whorganizations!

This month Canadian SW are launching a legal challenge against harmful laws that criminalize our work! 

The Canadian Alliance for SW Law Reform is challenging criminal laws that: 
  1. Prevent us from communicating for the purposes of our work. 
  2. Ban people from purchasing our services. 
  3. Provisions that ban us from making money and materially benefitting from our work
  4. Laws that prevent us from advertising our services on websites and chat boards!
Harmful laws make our work much more dangerous and expose us to state violence. This challenge is an important step in repealing Bill C-36! 
Maggie's Toronto's Black SW Emergency Survival Fund is $5,000 away from $100,000!
 
We're two solid sugar daddies sway from reaching this historic fundraising goal! Maggie's is giving out grants to Black SW impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic across Toronto and the GTA as well as emergency food boxes. 

We raise funds through our ticket sales and private shows, but it's. never a bad time to help a heaux & throw some cash at Black SW! 
We're proud to support our friends at Butterfly: Asian/Migrant SW Support Network working with massage workers across Toronto and the GTA!

The horrific shootings in Atlanta have revived conversations around gender-based violence and massage workers rights. These are struggles local SW in Toronto are fighting daily, including facing off against city council to address violence from Toronto police and bylaw enforcement officers. 


Keep up with Butterfly and donate to their solidarity fund to support migrant SW! 
Moka Dawkins continues to fight against police violence and surveillance. 

Following her release Moka has been building programs and supports for trans women, SW and formerly incarcerated people. She is outspoken about police violence and harassment, and is a powerful force for change in local movements for Black Liberation! 


Learn more about Moka's story and donate to her support fund through GoFundMe!


Find tickets for her birthday party + fundraiser on May 2nd! 
We need to talk about Bathhouses as key community spaces. These are gathering places, spaces of discovery, exploration, kink, desire and intimacy* that deserve all of the support and protection in our city's re-opening strategy.

The Coalition for Safe Bathhouse Re-openings is petitioning Toronto councillors and Public Health to meet and discuss specific re-opening strategies! Stay up to date on their work & support here! 

 
*filthy, messy, romantic, "gran-did-what-in-their-twenties?", toe-curling, praise-the-lord with a side of Montero kind of special.

One last announcement for our dedicated readers!

(We will not be taking questions at this time.)
