FSC, Ducati, Desert AIDS Project Launch 'Next Steps Program'

CATHEDRAL CITY, Calif. — The Free Speech Coalition (FSC), Trenton Ducati’s Ducati Studios and the Desert AIDS Project (DAP) will formally launch the Next Steps Program tomorrow.

The initiative will be unveiled during Ducati’s “Porn Disco” event at the CCBC Resort. “The pioneering partnership will help connect adult performers with vital healthcare (resources). The Next Steps program will assist adult performers in accessing Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP), mental health services and other health-related needs,” a rep said.

DAP will also be conducting free HIV testing and “spreading awareness about the program” throughout the weekend.

“The Next Steps program is still in its early phases. When fully realized, the program will provide free on-set visits for adult producers, community-specific healthcare messaging and informational materials, and a ‘warmline’ to help adult performers who may want to access healthcare, including PrEP, mental health services and substance abuse treatment,” notes the rep.

Eric Paul Leue, executive director of the FSC, described the Next Steps Program as “a crucial first step in making community-affirming care accessible to the performers and other sex workers.”

“By bringing together stakeholders from our community, and meeting them where they live and work, the Next Steps Program will make a marked difference in the mental, physical and sexual health of adult performers,” said Leue. “We hope this pilot program in the Coachella Valley will become a model for health departments and outreach organizations nationwide.”
