St. James Infirmary is hosting a community forum for Adult Film/Web Porn Performers of all genders/orientations to discuss the recent closure of Adult Industry Medical (AIM), re-regulation of CA Occupational Health and Safety laws relating to the Adult Film Industry and next steps to promoting a rights-based approach for Porn Performers. All performers are welcome to join us. Please RSVP to communications@StJamesInfirmary.org if you’re able to join us.
Who: Adult Film Performers
What: Community Forum on Health Regulations
When: Thursday December 16th, 2010 5:30-7:30pm
Where: St. James Infirmary, 1372 Mission St @ 10th, San Francisco
If you can’t join us: Please send an email to Communications@StJamesInfirmary.org or leave a message at (415) 554-9633 to receive notes from the forum.
Background: The California Occupational Health and Safety board have been reviewing studio practices based on complaints made to them, some from performers, some anonymous. The Aids Healthcare Foundation has been lobbying hard with limited input from people who actually work in the industry. In June of 2010 AIM applied for a community clinic license and on December 9th they received a cease and desist order after that application was denied.
We’re concerned that performers are being under- and mis-represented in these discussions and that it is critical for a diverse range of workers to come together to establish a unified voice to advocate for a rights-based approach to regulation.
Of course, our ultimate goal is for all performers to be as healthy and prosperous as possible! Please join us and share how you think these issues can best be approached. Please spread this message far and wide.
