XBIZ announces the Adult Talent Appreciation Gala

If you are in the adult industry you will want to head on over to Hyde Sunset lounge on November 16th at 8 pm for the Adult Talent Appreciation Gala hosted by XBIZ. It’s also a Prop 60 party and FSC is also celebrating their 25th anniversary. You must RSVP to attend this event. If you want to go just let your agent know or email events@xbiz.com. You must be a verified member of the adult industry to attend.

The world-class Sunset Boulevard venue will kick off with red carpet arrivals at 8 p.m. on Nov. 16, welcoming all adult industry members for a raucous Prop 60 victory party. Cocktails, schmoozing and all manner of delicious debauchery will ignite the moodily lit chambers of Hyde Sunset.

The RISE Advocacy Award, presented by the Free Speech Coalition, will be bestowed upon an individual whose advocacy has substantially defended the liberties of adult talent. This year, Prop 60 inspired many to stand up and fight for the community, but the industry will continue to face threats to its continued prosperity and freedoms. Henceforth, the RISE Advocacy Award will honor those who heroically crusade for the greater good.

Without a strong performer voice, we would not have been able to wage such a strong campaign against Proposition 60,” Leue said. “The unity we have seen in the past year has been inspiring — thousands of performers, coming together, fighting against stigma and demanding their rights. Through social media, op-eds, campaign videos, marches, protests, radio shows and rallies, performers have gotten international coverage to what many thought was a niche political issue. I am proud to stand alongside them in the fight, bring their strength to the battles that lie ahead and honor them with the RISE Advocacy Award.

The RISE Image Award, presented by the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee, will crown an individual who has cultivated such a professional, exemplary and positive image, that they uplift the community as a whole. Given the tremendous social media power and popularity of adult talent, they can strongly affect perceptions both within the business and in the mainstream. Those paragons who professionally balance entertainment and courtesy will earn the RISE Image Award.

“I am happy to present the RISE Image Award on behalf of the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee,” Preston said. “As the award presented to a performer who has cultivated a positive reputation and elevated the community, I feel this is the perfect representation of what APAC strives for in the performer community.

The RISE Legacy Award, presented by XBIZ, will anoint an individual whose storied career has created such an enduring legacy in the business, their beneficial impact will be felt for generations to come. To ascend unto the heights of iconic influence, an adult performer must produce a body of work as noteworthy for its prolific quantity as for its distinguished quality. Those all-stars whose very presence commands the sort of respect befitting a legend, will claim the RISE Legacy Award.
