AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) and other supporters and backers of Ballot Measure B in Los Angeles County will host a MEDIA AVAILABILITY throughout the day Tuesday, December 4, 2012 to discuss the victory of the ballot measure (which passed with final poll numbers 56.96% in favor to 43.04% against), Tuesday, December 4, 2012. The measure, formally known as the County of Los Angeles Safer Sex in the Adult Film Industry Act, is to be formally certified along with other election results in Los Angeles County during the Board of Supervisors Meeting Tuesday morning. The law now requires producers of adult films to obtain a public health permit from the County; follow all health and safety laws, including condom use; and pay a permit fee sufficient to cover all enforcement costs.
The ballot measure was initially spearheaded by AIDS Healthcare Foundation and members of FAIR (‘For Adult Industry Responsibility’) after as many as 22 HIV infections believed to be tied to the adult film industry were reported in two outbreaks in Los Angeles since 2004, and amidst thousands of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) occurring annually among adult performers.
