LOS ANGELES — Free Speech Coalition on Thursday announced a new incentive for adult performers to attend this Monday's fundraiser for the "No on Measure B" campaign.
Performers that attend the fundraiser, which is being organized by the No on Government Waste Committee to support its "No on Measure B" effort, will receive 10 bingo cards and a complimentary year-long membership to Free Speech Coalition (for those who wish to join) by paying the $20 door charge at Hamburger Mary's in West Hollywood. Monday is Legendary Bingo Night at Hamburger Mary's Bar & Grill starting at 8 p.m.
The industry professional membership to FSC is valued at $50 for one year. Portions of Monday evening’s proceeds will go to benefit the No On Government Waste – No on Measure B Campaign.
The No on Government Waste Committee is an opponent of Measure B, the so-called “Safer Sex” initiative on the Nov. 6 ballot in Los Angeles County.
Measure B, funded and placed on the ballot by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, would require the L.A. County Department of Public Health to license and permit adult movie productions in the county and require performers to wear condoms.
“I have been a FSC board member more than a decade now,” said event organizer Mara Epstein. “Performers have always been an important part of FSC — and now that we are fighting for performers’ right to choose whether or not they use condoms on-set — we want to allow performers this one-time opportunity to become members and join FSC. By participating in the industry trade association, performers have a voice on issues like testing."
“FSC has fought many battles on the behalf of the industry, going back to when most current performers were still babies,” Epstein added. “The time has come again, for all industry members to work together and keep the California industry from being attacked by our opposition.”
Hamburger Mary’s Bar & Grill is located at 8228 Santa Monica Blvd. at Sweetzer Ave.
Adult star Amber Lynn and rocker/comedian/sex toy expert, Phil Varone, are scheduled to appear at the fundraiser. Legendary Bingo will feature popular hostess Roxy. Evil Angel founder John Stagliano also will be in attendance, along with representatives from Evil Angel, Vivid Entertainment, Adam & Eve, Topco Sales, and many more.
Naughty gift baskets will be filled with videos and sex toys for the live auction, and some great items also will be raffled, FSC said. Gift baskets and prizes have been provided by Adam & Eve, Topco Sales, Vivid Entertainment, Penthouse, Hustler, Evil Angel Video, Monarchy Films, Severe Society, Dirty Hot Products, Eldorado Trading Co., La Jolie Salon of Beverly Hills, Jeffrey Lehman of KB Collection, Edwards Lowell of Beverly Hills, Diane Duke, Kim Ayers, David Bertolino and Maia Toys, among others.
