Free Speech Coalition (FSC) is proud to announce that Wastelend.com CEO Colin Rowntree will receive the FSC Leadership Award, to be presented at the XBIZ Awards on Wednesday night.

“Colin volunteered his time and efforts to oppose the proposed .XXX sponsored top level domains – an issue that FSC has been dealing with for nearly ten years,” FSC Executive Director Diane Duke said. “By dedicating himself to spreading the message on .XXX opposition, Colin not only went above and beyond to support FSC, but also to reach out to his colleagues and peers in the industry.

“Colin’s work exemplifies the kind of community-building that the adult industry needs in order to face the issues that challenge us today,” Duke added.

Rowntree produced and directed “.XXX – The Movie,” a public service announcement on behalf of .XXX opposition and featuring industry leaders including  John Stagliano (Evil Angel CEO), Ron Cadwell (CCBill CEO), Peter Acworth (Kink CEO), Mitch Farber (Netbilling CEO), among others. The video’s script was written by FSC Board member Theresa “Darklady” Reed.

FSC’s Leadership Award is presented to the adult entertainment industry business or individual who demonstrates excellence in the adult entertainment industry in leading by example. This award can be given for community service, activism, creating a positive and outstanding work environment, innovations and other qualities that lift the business or individual above the rest.

The XBIZ Awards are to be held February 9, at the Palladium in Hollywood, CA.
