Massage Services from Guys for Guys

Oldtown News
Vancouver, BC


I'm happy to announce that I have been involved in setting up a Male to Male Massage Service in Vancouver, BC.

Often, especially in Vancouver most of the focus has been on the female side of massage and escorting yet Vancouver has a really busy male to male industry but little attention has been given to the guys side of things especially around safety issues and economic security.

So I'm happy to report that I've been working with a number of young men in setting up a group called Red Light Massage. The guys will not be isolated and are planning to work in a co-operative-like way.

The gentlemen essentially are their own agency and I'm thrilled to announce they have asked if I would be willing to take on the role of General Manager at Red Light. Primarily, I will be answering their calls, providing support, scheduling their work and of course ensuring that their health, safety and security needs are met. This will include careful screening of their clients.

In a nutshell my role is to lend my experience to the gentlemen's economic and community capacity building and I am deeply honoured that they have requested me to take on this role for them.

The Red Light Guys will operate under the current legal framework that the City requires and while there may be some stumbling blocks or hiccups along the way, hopefully these can be sorted out in a positive and affirming way to the individuals involved.

Perhaps Vancouver finally has arrived on a world class stage!!!
