AHF: FSC is Lying About L.A. County HIV Commission Vote on California Condom Ballot Measure

Despite reports to the contrary on adult film blogs like XBIZ, there was no new action or vote taken by either the Los Angeles County HIV Commission or the Board of Supervisors this week to the California Safer Sex in the Adult Film Industry Act, a November 2016 ballot measure

LOS ANGELES--()--Despite reports to the contrary on adult film blog sites like XBIZ regarding any government bodies formally opposing the California Safer Sex in the Adult Film Industry Act, there was NO action or vote taken by either the Los Angeles County HIV Commission or the Board of Supervisors this week regarding the measure. The California Safer Sex in the Adult Film Industry Act is a November 2016 statewide ballot measure that will ensure porn performers receive the same workplace health and safety protections all Californians enjoy and that they are provided condoms during the filming of all adult films in the state.

“The Free Speech Coalition is lying: there was no new action by the HIV Commission or the Board of Supervisors taken on the statewide condom ballot measure this week,” said Michael Weinstein, President of AIDS Healthcare Foundation. “The issue was not agendized. Members of FSC and/or the Commission spoke in public comments—as any concerned citizen or interest group can—at a regularly scheduled weekly meeting of the board this past Tuesday. No one in any County structure has the power to issue any statements on public policy other than the Board, and the Board is on record favoring state legislation to require condoms in porn.”
