2:00 PM Press Conference: City of Los Angeles Adopts Condoms Ordinance, Says AHF

Business Wire - January 10, 2012

Today, Los Angeles City Council adopted a proposed ordinance that will tie adult film permits to condom use in the films and dropped the lawsuit against ballot measure's proponents LOS ANGELES - In an historic move, during today's City Council meeting, the Los Angeles City Council adopted the proposed ordinance, 'City of Los Angeles Safer Sex In The Adult Film Industry Act,' a ballot initiative that has recently qualified to be placed on the June 5, 2012 election despite legal action by Los Angeles City Attorney Carmen Trutanich to block the measure from appearing before City voters on the ballot. The ballot measure would condition the issuance of City film permits to adult film producers to condom use in the subsequent adult films shot and produced in Los Angeles. AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) will host an in-person press conference at 2:00 PM Pacific at its headquarters (6255 W. Sunset Blvd., 21st Floor, Los Angeles, CA 90028) to respond to the news, as well as a press teleconference at 3:00 pm Pacific. (see dial-in information below) In early December, adult film safety advocates submitted over 70,000 Los Angeles voter signatures--far more than the 41,000 needed to qualify the measure for election. In a January 3, 2012 letter, June Lagmay, Los Angeles City Clerk, certified the signatures and recommended that City Council either "...adopt the proposed ordinance, without alteration," outright or "submit it" for the "regularly-scheduled State Primary Election" set for June 5, 2012, which will be conducted by the County of Los Angeles.
