LOS ANGELES — In accordance with its monthly charity program, Girlfriends Films is donating $1000 to Lambda Legal on behalf of adult performer Lily Cade. The May donation is the second monthly donation in the charity program’s new format.
In April, performer/director Melissa Monet’s chosen charity Planned Parenthood received an equal donation. Lambda Legal is a non-profit charity committed to achieving full recognition of LGBT civil rights through impact litigation, education and advocacy.
Cade said, “I selected Lambda Legal because I’m a lesbian, so I obviously care about LGBT rights on a personal level. Girlfriends Films has numerous lesbian and queer fans, and I’m happy I can help them participate in the protection of LGBT rights.”

Cade continued, “Lambda Legal is fighting in the courts for people like me and my wife to have access to job protection, equal marriage, hospital visitation rights and more. When Prop 8 became a part of the California Constitution, Lambda Legal was a part of the team defending the validity of the marriages which occurred in the interim between the original Supreme Court decision of marriage equality and the passing of the proposition taking it away. One of those still valid marriages is mine.”
Girlfriends Films VP Moose said, “As a leading producer in lesbian adult entertainment, we understand the importance of being active in the LGBT community. We love Lily’s selection of Lambda Legal. For decades the organization has been on front lines of the fight for civil rights. Helping progressive charities like Lambda is exactly why our program was formed.”
Each month, Girlfriends Films selects an adult performer from received entries and makes a $1000 donation in her name to the specified charity. The only condition is performers must choose from one of the organizations receiving a “B+” rating or better by the American Institute of Philanthropy.
Cade's feature debut, “Art School Dykes,” recently received an honorable mention at the Feminist Porn Awards, and she's working on a movie for Girlfriends Films which features real lesbian couples.
