It’s a glorious long weekend here in Canada and since you’re all at home (or maybe hustling!), I wanted to bring you a great episode with none other than Leya Tanit. Leya is the founder of Pineapple Support, therapy and additional support for sex workers. Leya, a long-time veteran in the BDSM space identified early on in her career that there was a lack of accessible therapy in the SW community. Because our work is so highly stigmatized, it can be challenging for SWers to find therapists who are qualified to provide support for those in our field without feeling judged. That, and some therapists hold biases or haven’t even undergone the correct sensitivity training to work with marginalized groups. With this in mind, Leya went on to create Pineapple Support to fill the void. Leya breaks down the current offerings that Pineapple Support provides, some on a sliding scale and goes over the many free services that the organization provides and goes over who it services. In need of extra support? With 24/7 and countless services, you’ll want to check out Pineapple Support.
