Yet another HIV case in porn shuts down the industry and proves again how unsafe it is…
[LA Weekly - excerpt ] — A performer has tested positive for HIV and the porn industry’s L.A.-based trade group is calling for an immediate production shutdown as a result. [...]
In a statement sent to the Weekly and other outlets, AHF chief Michael Weinstein had this to say:
“AHF is saddened by the news of yet another adult performer having been infected with HIV. We hope that this person seeks care immediately, and that others were not exposed. Whether this performer was infected in L.A. County or not, this latest news begs the question: how many people need to become infected with HIV for the County of Los Angeles to engage actively in implementing the will of the voters of LA county to protect these performers? How many more performers need to become infected for the industry to comply with existing regulations and laws requiring workplace safety? The willful disregard by the County of Los Angeles and the Industry for the health and welfare of people is becoming more and more apparent. The industry as a whole, and the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health should be ashamed.”
Industry blogger Mike South (NSFW link) says the porn star who tested positive is male.
The news comes after a summer in which a few performers tested positive for the sexually-transmitted disease.
