LOS ANGELES, Calif. /California Newswire/ — Calif. Assemblymember Isadore Hall, III (D-Los Angeles) will hold a Valentine’s Day press conference to introduce legislation requiring condom use in all adult films produced in California.
Joined by Michael Weinstein, President of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation and Darren James, a former adult film actor who contracted HIV while working in the industry, Hall’s legislation will provide statewide uniformity needed to ensure that the thousands of actors employed in this multi-billion dollar industry are given reasonable workplace safety protections needed to reduce exposure to HIV and other Sexually Transmitted Diseases.
This past November, voters in Los Angeles County overwhelmingly approved Measure B, requiring the use of condoms in adult films produced within the County. Hall’s measure will expand upon the workplace protections now required in Los Angeles County to protect all adult film actors throughout the state.
