Director of Sexual Health and Advocacy at Kink.com, Eric Paul Leue has officially been appointed to Executive Director of the Free Speech Coalition! He will take over in a very important time for the FSC and the adult industry; with new Cal/OSHA regulations which would require eye protection, dental dams and condom when shooting adult film, and a ballot measure which would allow private citizens to file lawsuits against producers and performers who don’t appear to comply with the regulations.
“It’s an incredible honor to be able to lead the charge of the Free Speech Coalition, at a time when the adult industry is fighting for its very survival,” said Leue. “When it comes to free speech, performer safety, and sexual health, we cannot let the moralistic and anti-scientific arguments dictate policy. I will fight to keep our industry safe and legal.”
