Uncontrolled gender-affirming hormone use in transgender sex workers in Antwerp. Background and aims: Research indicates that a ificant portion of transgender women are involved in sex work, which is mostly attributed to discrimination of transgender persons on the labour market. Transition-related health risk behaviour, such as uncontrolled hormone use, auto-medication and the use of silicone injections, may lead to several adverse health outcomes for transgender persons.
Transgender sex workers are a vulnerable group within the transgender population, who might be at increased risk for these health risk behaviours because of economic marginalisation. However, European research into this topic and risk population remains largely absent.
This study is the first exploring these risk behaviours in a European sample of transgender sex workers, as well as the association with their socio-demographic characteristics, their work and their migration pathways. Methods: This study explores the prevalence of uncontrolled gender-affirming hormone use among transgender sex workers working in window-based sex work in the Antwerp red light district Belgiumas well as their socio-demographic characteristics and migration pathways.
In co-operation with two outreach organizations providing sexual health services to sex Looking sex antwerp, a face-to-face survey was carried out among 46 transgender sex workers. Descriptive analyses of this survey sample were supplemented with 9 in-depth interviews with transgender sex workers, which were analysed using Grounded Theory.
Engaging in sex work appears to be an important reason for this uncontrolled gender-affirming hormone use and auto-medication, as gender-affirming hormones frequently cause erectile dysfunction and an erection is often required when engaging in transgender sex work.
Access to health care and social services should be ensured, and culturally tailored health interventions that take into their social context as well as their gender identity should be developed. Browse other volumes.
