Ashly LorenzanaHey there, my name is Ashly Lorenzana.

I’m a drug addict and a prostitute. I feel compelled to share these things with you for two equally important reasons:

1) I feel absolutely no shame about either of these things

2) I believe most other addicts and sex workers will continue to feel badly about who they are unless someone is open about these things and refuses to feel negatively about them.
