APLA Issues Formal Statement Opposing Condom Measure

LOS ANGELES—AIDS Project Los Angles, one of the state's leading public health and advocacy organizations, has formally come out in opposition to the "Safer Sex in Adult Film Production Act" that goes before California voters on November's ballot. In a press statement, APLA contends that the measure "will not protect adult film performers as intended" and that "it will subject performers and producers to lawsuits and drive the adult film industry underground or to places that offer few protections for workers." Furthermore, it notes that the measure "completely ignores recent developments in HIV biomedical prevention, such as pre-exposure prophylaxis [PrEP]." "APLA's opposition confirms just how oppressive and flawed this proposal is," states Eric Paul Leue, chair of the Californians Against Worker Harassment committee formed to fight the pending ballot initiative. "This 'lawsuit bonanza' measure will allow performers to be sued by any resident of California just for working in a controversial industry. Who will be next?" APLA joins a diverse group of opponents to the pending ballot measure, including the California Republican Party and the San Francisco Democratic Central Committee. “No worker in any other industry will face this type of harassment from the public,” Leue says. “The initiative empowers stalkers, harassers, profiteers and crusaders, while leaving actual performers more vulnerable." The Legislative Analyst’s Office, which evaluates ballot initiatives for fiscal impact, predicts the bill will cost California taxpayers tens of millions of dollars each year in lost revenue.
