(CHATSWORTH, CA) -- In accordance with its monthly charity program, Girlfriends Films is donating $1000 to Lambda Legal on behalf of adult performer Lily Cade. The May donation is the second monthly donation in the charity programís new format.
In April, performer / director Melissa Monetís chosen charity Planned Parenthood received an equal donation. Lambda Legal is a non-profit charity committed to achieving full recognition of LGBT civil rights through impact litigation, education and advocacy. Lily Cade says, "I selected Lambda Legal because Iím a lesbian, so I obviously care about LGBT rights on a personal level. Girlfriends Films has numerous lesbian and queer fans, and Iím happy I can help them participate in the protection of LGBT rights."

Cade continues, "Lambda Legal is fighting in the courts for people like me and my wife to have access to job protection, equal marriage, hospital visitation rights and more. When Prop 8 became a part of the California Constitution, Lambda Legal was a part of the team defending the validity of the marriages which occurred in the interim between the original Supreme Court decision of marriage equality and the passing of the proposition taking it away. One of those still valid marriages is mine."
"As a leading producer in lesbian adult entertainment, we understand the importance of being active in the LGBT community," says Girlfriends Films Vice President Moose. "We love Lilyís selection of Lambda Legal. For decades the organization has been on front lines of the fight for civil rights. Helping progressive charities like Lambda is exactly why our program was formed."
Each month, Girlfriends Films selects an adult performer from received entries and makes a $1000 donation in her name to the specified charity. The only condition is performers must choose from one of the organizations receiving a "B+" rating or better by the American Institute of Philanthropy (http://www.charitywatch.org/toprated.html).
Girlfriends Films has a long history of charitable contributions, having donated over $20,000 in 2010 alone. The company recently restructured its charity program from an annual end-of-year donation to an ongoing, monthly program. Any Girlfriends Films performers interested in participating may apply by emailing the following information to PR@GirlfriendsFilms.com: name, AIP charity of choice, reason(s) for selecting the charity. Chosen performers will be asked to submit a personal photo depicting the performer engaged with the charity, the charityís mission, or a similar charitable act. The photo will be used for promotional purposes.
Lily Cadeís movies for Girlfriends Films include: "Women Seeking Women: Volume 66," "Women Seeking Women: Volume 67" and the "Girls in White 2011" series.
