Cleveland Gay Sex Workers Reportedly Get Boost In Business During RNC [Video]

It's been an exciting and eventful Republican National Convention for more than just the politicians, and reportedly, Cleveland's gay sex workers saw an extreme business boom during the event. According to an RT report, male sex workers saw a surge in their income during the week-long Republican event. Some gay male prostitutes in Cleveland claim that they earned more than five times their average weekly take during the convention. On the flip side of the coin, female Cleveland sex workers have been reporting a dramatic drop in their business over the course of the RNC.

Reportedly, part of the reason for the increase in business among gay sex workers in Cleveland was a targeted advertising campaign among available sex workers. Gay escorts reportedly took to Craigslist in near-record numbers with postings advertising gay sex services during the Republican National Convention.

Many of the ads that popped up on the online classified site were reported to have been specifically directed at those in town for the political convention.

"Business has been way better. I've seen 10 clients so far."

"Most of them were first-timers. You could tell they were nervous, but once they became more comfortable, they seemed to be enjoying themselves."

At least one of Cleveland's gay sex workers told the media that he definitely wasn't shocked with the increase in business that the Republican National Convention brought to town. Far from it, in fact. According to him, events like the RNC can be expected to bring business to the gay sex trade in Cleveland or any other city where they take place.

"When it comes to anything people aren't supposed to be doing, they like to do it."

The 2016 Republican political platform has also claimed the desire to make it more difficult gay (or LGBT) couples to adopt children and even make it legal for parents of LGBT youth to force their minor children into controversial "conversion therapies."

Several female Cleveland sex workers were contacted by the media, and they reported that they were earning less as a result of the Republican National Convention.

"Business is slower than usual. I haven't been getting any calls."
