HUSTLE (How U Survive this Life Everyday) is an outreach and support program, designed and implemented by experiential folks (e.g.: current/former sex workers) for self-identified men working in the sex industry. HUSTLE offers tailored care plans including resources, referrals and supports to address physical, sexual, social and mental health concerns.

Who We Are

HUSTLE was founded in 2007 and since then, we have continued to represent the male voice in sex work at various tables, committees and research partnerships. In 2009, HUSTLE joined HIM (Health Initiative for Men) and has continued to expand and uphold our mission and vision. HUSTLE provides advocacy, education, and information to individuals, organizations and communities to promote safety, increase access to quality care, and support informed decision making about your health and wellness. HIM and HUSTLE believes in our community’s right to access harm reduction and non-judgemental physical, sexual and mental health care. HUSTLE facilitates access by helping you connect with care providers in a safe and judgement-free environment.
