SAN FRANCISCO — Evil Angel founder John Stagliano will speak at the upcoming Cybernet Expo to be held June 10-12 at San Francisco’s Golden Gateway Hotel.

The legendary director/producer was indicted in April on multiple obscenity charges by the Federal government, one of which is related to Internet distribution of adult content.

Stagliano, who has since pleaded not guilty on all counts has launched a website, DefendOurPorn.com, in support of his legal efforts.

Stagliano is scheduled to speak twice at Cybernet Expo, on the subjects of freedom of expression, the Internet, sexuality and his legal issues.

“I am working on something that will talk about the incredible cultural advance the Internet has made in human sexuality,” Stagliano said in a press release. He also will focus on “the battle against those who would leave us bound in a closet.”

The director will be a guest panelist at the Free Speech Coalition Roundtable Luncheon, scheduled for June 12 at 12 p.m., and then make a 30-minute presentation, titled "Are We Evil or Divine?" scheduled for 5 p.m. the same day.

“In today’s world of technology, especially how it relates to the Internet, this obscenity prosecution creates a lot of issues before we even get to trial, including defining the appropriate community as it relates to Internet material,” said Attorney Al Gelbard in an earlier XBIZ story, discussing the Stagliano case.

Stagliano is known as an originator of gonzo-style adult content, and as the creator of the popular “Buttman” magazine and series of videos, as well as the multi-award-winning “Fashionistas” series.
