In Kenya, it is believed that having sex with a virgin will cure HIV/AIDS…(ECPAT International, 2007) This myth and practice has favoured the trafficking of young girls to major child sex tourist destinations.
Come join us and Artful Vandelays to raise our voices against sex trafficking in Toronto on May 25th at The Central. 603 Markham Street.
Come raise our voices against sex trafficking with The Hammer Antics at The Central (603 Markham St.) in downtown Toronto. Check out their song below for a taste of what’s to hit us that day.

Today is the National Human Trafficking Awareness Day in the US. I had started this blog back in 2011 after being seeing for the first time the video below. Before that day, I had never heard of sex trafficking or even thought of what human trafficking was. Me being part Cambodian, this particular video definitely struck a nerve.
Please check it out and know that this horror is not just happening in Asia. It’s occurring right in our own backyards here in North America.

If you have 7 min. to spare, please take a look at this trailer about 2 guys making a difference and exposing the dark world of sex trafficking in Asia. It must’ve been frightening, dangerous, frustrating, heart-breaking for them to go through with this project and pretending to be predators, but this is what’s need to let the truth of what is really happening come out. This is what is needed to turn ignorance or un-awareness into action. Looks like the DVD is only available in Australia and New Zealand now. Hopefully, it can be made available to the rest of the world soon.
