What seventeen year old boy deserves the utter torture of having to choose between working in the sex industry or not buying any of his daily living essentials?
Well that's what 'Boo' faces everyday. At seventeen he is already working as a male 'Escort' and being led astray just because he simply cannot afford to carry on without the tiny amounts of money he earns.
Now you would think the money he would receive would be worth it right?
Its minute money.
As an openly 'out' member of the LGBTQ community, there is a certain stereotype that I fear would hinder him or tarnish his reputation.
This is that ALL gay men are ALWAYS up for it.
They are not.
He is already suffering enough in the case that he has to go and give up his innocence to clients, let alone the fact that only recently he witnessed a brutal rape on another worker 'on top of him' before being brutally raped until he bled himself.
This is not fair.
This is not right.
He currently resides in SA and is moving to the UK to study at a UNI and needs a working laptop and phone etc for this.
I want to be able to say to him 'hey look, a million other people care about you and don't want you to do this. Here's your money. Get what you need and choose a better job, because this time you will have a choice'.
No one should have to endure the unknown of the sex industry just to survive. NO ONE
let alone a young man who instead of growing up, has been fucked and forced in to growing up.
Why should he have to go down the path of wiping his brain with marijuana leaves to wipe away the bad memories of nasty men who used him as he didn't want to be used, why should he have to resort to drinking so much he can barely string together his thoughts anymore, just because he wants to drown the demons and sorrows hiding down within him.
Please, lets help him and try to set this life so full of potential back on track.
Lets make it so he has an option.
That he can carry on being a child and enjoying himself.
Not sitting high and alone in his bedroom desperately trying to forget why he is covered in his own blood.

About the fundraiser
Concerned fellow gay
At nearly 22 I don't feel emotionally capable of handling the things men say to me after attempting to take up cam work but then witnessing what appeared to be a horrifying rape scene with one of the other girls online and having to report it. I don't know how he does it.
