LOS ANGELES, CA – On Sunday, December 4, 2016, the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee forgoes traditional meeting format to discuss detailed experiences of racial discrimination in the adult entertainment industry, and provide potential solutions for diversification.
APAC requests all performers who wish to share their encounters draft a statement to be read at the December meeting. The statement should include both observations of racial discrimination and methods of responding to and preventing further inequality. These statements will be read without audience interruption.
The purpose of this meeting is to plan a better environment for all performers. As the subject matter is very sensitive and emotional, everyone is asked to stay focused and refrain from unhelpful statements or outbursts. Moderators are tasked to prevent aimless debate and provide a place for performers to respectfully share opinions while being respected in return.
This discussion is the first of what is foreseen to be a series of performer-led conversations dedicated to the improvement of the adult film industry and the adult film community. In the wake of the truly historical defeat of Prop 60, adult film workers should not doubt the power of their voices and what can be accomplished with a united front.
While performers are certainly invited to provide a vision for equality based on their personal experiences with racial discrimination, all are welcome to listen and brainstorm viable options for inclusion. Industry members are encouraged to participate in this APAC meeting on Sunday evening, from 8 PM until 10 PM. Any performer interested in speaking must RSVP to APAC.
