Richard speaks of being paid for sex as a child which he agreed to in order to help feed his family. He journeys to Cape Town where he discovers that being paid for sex is called sex work. He finds SWEAT (Sex Workers Education and Advocacy Task Force) and a community which accepts his sexuality and his work as a sex worker. Richard was raped and beaten up but tells no-one. Until one day he speaks to his Pastor who helps him find counseling and later assists Richard with his outreach work to other sex workers.
