Introducing Speaker: Lynly Egyes

Lynly S. Egyes, Esq. is a Senior Staff Attorney with the Sex Workers Project in New York. Lynly provides legal advocacy, advice, and information to sex workers and survivors of human trafficking on a variety of issues, including immigration, criminal law, civil consequences of convictions and public benefits. Prior to joining the Sex Workers Project, Lynly’s career has focused on helping people in the margins, with a special emphasis on youth, LGBT and immigrants’ rights. She also managed the student leadership program at the Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Education Network.

We are excited to announce Egyes’ talk about victims of human trafficking with a focus on the marginalization of LGBT victims. Her outspoken advocacy for the recognition and attention to the unique ways members of LGBT communities experience gender-based violence has led to talks at conferences and been profiled in the media.
