RhED produces a bi-annual social health magazine – RED. Each issue is packed with a variety of features, regular items including Trade Talk and Media Talk, as well as contributions from sex workers such as stories, poems and information.

RED aims to reflect the diversity of our readership and to do this we need your feedback and contributions. Please send us your information, opinions, ideas, artwork and requests for articles of interest to you. Post, fax, phone or email us: any way you like – just keep in touch!

If you wish to advertise in the RED magazine or receive a hard copy, please phone RhED 1800 458 752 or email sexworker@sexworker.org.au

RED Edition #30 October 2016
Dear RED readers,

Welcome to the 30th edition of RED where we acknowledge and celebrate the last 15 years of the RED magazine.

This is a significant and exciting milestone for the program, and one we could not have reached without your contributions and feedback over the last 15 years. Without your contributions and feedback, we would not have a magazine, and we are eternally grateful for the mass of contributions that continue to flow our way! Thank you!

2016 has seen the launch of the RhED art project which you can read about in the magazine, and follow us on our Facebook page for updates. This project seeks to explore different ways of expressing sex worker voices through art mediums, and we are hoping that this project will support our decriminalisation strategy more broadly.

In September we bid farewell to our esteemed colleague and friend Mardi Kennedy who has been with the program for the last five years. Mardi has been a strong and passionate advocate for the industry and will be sorely missed. We wish you all the best in your future endeavours Mardi!

We are currently exploring ideas for our professional development workshops for 2017 – see more information on page 2 – so please contact us with any ideas you may have!

Finally, RhED will be holding a stall at SEXPO in November this year – please come along and visit us, we’d love to see you!
