Struggling to survive financially in exile, these gay and transgender refugees work as escorts in Istanbul, a practice often referred to as 'survival sex'. They find their customers online, on mobile apps, in bars and clubs, and through word of mouth. Selling sexual services is a reality for many LGBT+ refugees, and is sometimes the difference between being able to eat and pay rent, or sleeping rough. Sex workers can face exploitation, rape, and even murder. Prices shown are what the individual charges for various sexual services.
