LOS ANGELES — Veteran performers Nina Hartley and Richard Pacheco will speak at UCLA today in an event called “Backstage with the Porn Stars.” The appearance is in conjunction with the "Make Art/Stop AIDS" traveling art exhibit which is currently on display on campus.

"I’m going to be talking about my experience in adult entertainment, but more broadly, the importance of comprehensive sex education to help people, especially [college-age] people, make decisions appropriate to them regarding their behavior and sexual attitude,” Hartley said.

Pacheco appeared in more than 100 film and video productions before retiring from performing in 1985 as HIV and AIDS began to spread among the heterosexual population. For a few years he worked behind the scenes in the adult film industry and is now a writer and speaker.

Pacheco told the Daily Bruin that he has spoken at UCLA before and is excited to educate people about sex.

“The idea is to talk about sexuality, to encourage people to be able to enjoy themselves without being stupid,” Pacheco said.

Pacheco's son Bobby Gordon, a fourth-year world, arts and cultures student at UCLA and a Daily Bruin senior staff member, organized the event as part of the “Make Art/Stop AIDS” exhibit, which has hosted a series of related projects throughout the year.

After the speaking engagement, Pacheco and Hartley will walk with the audience to the Fowler Museum to view the "Make Art/Stop AIDS" art exhibit.

“It’s going to be simultaneously really entertaining and really insightful. Both of them have lots of great stories to tell,” Gordon said.

Pacheco said people should attend the event to hear about how AIDS changed the world.

“This is an entire generation where you’ve never not known AIDS," Pacheco said. "To describe a world where that didn’t exist is to give you a perspective bigger than your own life, which is what my generation went though. That’s interesting stuff."

The event is scheduled for Room 200 in Kaufman Hall on the UCLA campus at 3 p.m.
