We acknowledge the work of groups who tirelessly fight public opinion to decrease the stigma around the sex industry. We praise the support they bring to prostituted people. At Pink Cross Foundation Australia we hope to be a non-judgemental place where acceptance of people is what transpires from all our endeavours.

Based on the experience of our founder, Genevieve, and emerging from the Christian value of sacrificial love, radical feminist theory, and academic, statistical research on the effects of the commodification of human bodies and of pornography viewing and producing, we believe taking part in the activities of the prostitution industry is something temporary for those who find themselves in that place.

Pink Cross Foundation Australia has the belief that each human being has tremendous values, giftings and qualities other that submitting to the demand for male orgasm. We are also aware that most prostituted people are female. We are a place of acceptance for all seeking alternatives to earn money from the sex industry.
