This chapter discusses the role of intersectional movement building with similarly marginalized communities, including feminist, LGBT, HIV/AIDS, labor, harm-reduction, and anti-poverty groups. This chapter highlights the role that intersectional activism with feminist organizers in Uganda and HIV organizers in Botswana played in the birth of sex worker movements in those countries, as well as the foundations and contours of the acute solidarity that exists between African sex worker and LGBT activists. It reflects on unique opportunities for inclusive movement building between African sex workers and human rights, labor, anti-poverty, and harm-reduction advocates.

Keywords:   anti-poverty, feminist, harm reduction, HIV/AIDS, inclusivity, intersectionality, labor, LGBT, marginalized communities, movement building
