"This is an opportunity for us in the adult industry to show we're a part of the larger sex-positive community," drake said.

Like much of the adult industry, drake opposes the draconian measure which mandates condoms and other barriers in on-camera sex scenes.
"I've been pro-condom for a long time, and Wicked Pictures has been all-condom for years," drake said. "But that's our choice. We don't think condoms and barriers should be compelled by law."

About AIDS Walk Los Angeles:
The world's first AIDS Walk was developed by Craig R. Miller in 1984, during the height of the AIDS epidemic. Seeing the need for immediate action in response to this public-health emergency, Miller sought to fill the void left by the government's negligible response to the crisis. Drawing on his experience as a political and community organizer, Miller's approach combined grassroots activism with fundraising and other campaign strategies to raise both awareness and urgently needed funds for the fight against AIDS. Miller brought his idea to the fledgling AIDS service organization, AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA), who hired the young activist to produce this new event. Miller and APLA expected to draw a crowd of 1,000 supporters and raise $100,000 for this very first AIDS Walk. On July 28, 1985, in Los Angeles, 4,500 courageous and visionary people assembled at Paramount Studios and raised an astonishing $673,000. Since 1985, AIDS Walk Los Angeles has drawn over a half-million participants who have collectively raised more than $72 million for APLA. The event serves as a model of grassroots fundraising and community activism for organizations across the United States. For more information, visithttp://www.aidswalk.net/.
