AN UN­USUAL RE­TIRE­MENT HOME Sex work­ers spend their golden years in Casa Xochi­quet­zal Re­tir­ing isn’t easy; ask any­one who’s got some ex­pe­ri­ence. For some it can be ter­ri­fy­ing, es­pe­cially if your pro­fes­sion doesn’t re­ally come with struc­tured bene ts. As is the case for the res­i­dents of Casa ochi­quet­zal, a re­tire­ment home for sex work­ers in Mex­ico City. With­out a home like this, many of the women now re­sid­ing there would be forced to sleep on the streets. Casa Xochi­quet­zal was founded by Car­men Munoz, a re­tired sex worker, a er see­ing sex work­ers too old to con­tinue work­ing sleep­ing on the streets. The home opened its doors in and has helped around women to live a digni ed and peace­ful life in their golden years.
