About us


I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to HUSTLE: Men on the Move.  We are an outreach and support program which effectively offers a male/trans sex worker/youth specific component to HIM - Health Initiative for Men Society.  HUSTLE is designed and implemented by experiential individuals who see a need for an increase in specific front-line programming / support services for survival male/trans sex workers. Attention is also given to identifying and supporting  street involved youth who may be at risk of exploitation in Vancouver Communities.

HUSTLE is the first male sex worker initiative supported by the BC Coalition of Experiential Communities, www.bccec.wordpress.com and since the spring of 2007 when HUSTLE began to offer services to male, trans and youth clients, our list of community partners and allies continues to grow.

We provide traditional on-street outreach in the form of Harm Reduction/Safer Sex materials, Nutrition and Hygiene items as well as a Safe Needle Exchange.  A major component of this program is one on one peer and crisis support in the moment.  By providing consistent, non-judgmental services, over time, we continue to nurture a sense of community, thus increasing the overall health and safety of male/trans sex workers and youth that may be exploited on the streets of Vancouver. 

Our outreach services and program delivery are currently offered late night weekends as well as weekly visits to various drop-ins and resource centers. We have been successful at engaging youth by meeting them where they are at as well as supporting the population of male/trans sex workers in the natural networks and venues that they access and frequent, such as stroll/track, internet cafes, and existing community organizations. By showing consistency in our services, HUSTLE has built relationships that foster trust and respect.  Simply put, the more time we spend together, the less time we are alone.
