Contract Superstar jessica drake & TEAM WICKED Raise Over $21,000 for AIDS Walk Los Angeles

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contract Superstar jessica drake & TEAM WICKED
Raise
Over $21,000 for AIDS Walk Los Angeles

Adult Stars Urge Voters to Say NO to Prop. 60
While 
Earning Top 10 Spot Among Event’s Fundraising Teams!

LOS ANGELES (October 28, 2016) – Wicked Girl and sex educator jessica drake along with TEAM WICKED raised $21,755 for AIDS charities while urging voters to say no to the anti-porn Prop. 60 ballot measure at AIDS Walk Los Angeles on October 23. The annual fund-raising event was held, for the first time, at Grand Park in Downtown Los Angeles.

Led by the popular adult performer and sexual wellness advocate, the star-studded team easily surpassed last year’s fundraising total of $15,416, placing 10th among the more than 1,000 teams participating and surpassing the totals earned by such other returning teams as Paramount Pictures, ABC 7 and the Fox Entertainment Group. TEAM WICKED was designated a Gold Team after finishing among the top fundraising teams at the 32nd annual event, which raised more than $1.7 million for AIDS organizations in Los Angeles.

jessica drake, who was among the top individual fund-raisers, was designated a Star Walker for raising $9,025 and finishing 9th among all individual fundraisers. Team member and adult performer Ryan Driller was the squad’s next top fundraiser with $2,500, followed by Jessica Johnson who raised $1,500, Venus Lux with $1,100, Vanessa Veracruz with $1,025 and Katrina Jade and Tyler Nixon, who each earned $1,000. All seven were selected as Star Walkers at the event for their individual fundraising effort.

Those interested may still donate by visiting TEAM WICKED’s AIDS Walk L.A. web page at https://la.aidswalk.net/teamwicked.

“I am very grateful and very proud of all our team members, supporters and friends who helped make this event our most successful walk!” drake said. “We were able to raise a great deal of money for AIDS charities and were also able to raise awareness and spread our message of saying No to Prop. 60 and the deceptive campaign they are running to drive away the adult industry out of California!”

The proposed legislation is the controversial “Condoms in Pornographic Films Initiative” which will be on the November 8, 2016 ballot in California. If passed, it could have devastating ramifications by allowing any California resident to sue adult performers and producers — and potentially collect damages — if condoms are not visible in every frame of a scene.

“We are extremely proud of jessica and TEAM WICKED for surpassing last year’s fundraising total for this great event,” said Wicked Pictures President and Owner Steve Orenstein. “This year the team had 38 members and earned a total of 185 individual donations. We’re especially pleased to see such a great response from industry members who joined TEAM WICKED in its two-fold goal of raising needed funds for AIDS charities and for bringing greater awareness about Prop. 60 and its proponents’ blatant effort to mislead voters about the real purpose of this proposition.”

Besides her ongoing work with TEAM WICKED and other charitable activities, jessica drake has been traveling the world, making speaking appearances and media contributions with her message of sexual wellness and the importance of maintaining a healthy relationship through a mutually satisfying love life. She is a regular columnist for Style Caster, and recently appeared on BuzzFeed’s original series “Modern Sex”. Additional contributions from jessica this year appear in outlets such as Uproxx, AskMen, CNBC, Vice, BuzzFeed, Bustle, Maxim, Refinery 29, Prime Mind, GQ, Your Tango, and many others.

jessica drake’s activism for sex education is rooted in the success of her award-winning “jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex,” which has earned drake much acclaim for its message of sexual wellness and for its many awards and honors. The series’ volume on Fellatio earned AVN’s 2012 Best Educational Release trophy, “Anal” was named XBIZ’s 2012 Specialty Release of the Year, “Anal Sex for Men” received AVN’s 2014 Best Educational Release award, and “Plus Size” earned XBIZ’s 2015 Specialty Release of the Year.

Established in 1985, AIDS Walk Los Angeles was the world’s first walk dedicated to fighting HIV/AIDS. Over the last 31 years, the event has raised more than $79 million for HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, and advocacy programs. For more, please visit http://apla.org or http://la.aidswalk.net/.

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.

jessica drake Invites Prop 60 Opponents to Join TEAM WICKED for AIDS Walk Los Angeles

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

jessica drake Invites Prop 60 Opponents to Join TEAM WICKED for AIDS Walk Los Angeles

Industry Activists Encouraged to Raise Donations & Awareness with a Top Fundraising Team!

LOS ANGELES (October 11, 2016) – Wicked Pictures contract performer and adult superstar jessica drake is making a final call on industry members to join TEAM WICKED to participate at the annual AIDS Walk Los Angeles on October 23. The fund-raising event will begin at 10 a.m. at Grand Park, 200 N. Grand Ave. Los Angeles 90012, in Downtown L.A.

For 2016, drake is making a special appeal to opponents of Proposition 60, the controversial “Condoms in Pornographic Films Initiative” which will be on the November 8, 2016 ballot in California as an initiated state statute. If passed, it can prove to have devastating ramifications to the adult entertainment industry as a whole. It would allow any resident of California to sue adult performers and anyone with financial interest in the film if condoms are not visible in every frame of a scene. This measure has the potential to create an avalanche of lawsuits that could cost the state millions.

In 2015, TEAM WICKED raised $15,416 for a total of nearly $70,000 over the last four years of the event to benefit AIDS charities. TEAM WICKED Fundraising efforts are making a difference. According to the June 2016 report, the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention more than 1.2 million people in the US are living with HIV, and 1 in 8 of them don’t know it, but over the last decade, the annual number of new HIV diagnoses declined by 19%. The decrease may be due to consistent and targeted HIV prevention efforts like AIDS Walk LA.

With the aim of raising $25,000, TEAM WICKED so far has raised more than $14,472 and is more than halfway toward its goal, making it the fourth among all teams participating. As team leader, drake herself has exceeded her personal goal and has raised over $6,400. Those interested in donating may visit TEAM WICKED’s AIDS Walk L.A. web page at https://la.aidswalk.net/teamwicked.

“TEAM WICKED is again taking to the streets to join AIDS Walk Los Angeles to raise awareness of the great need for support of AIDS charities. We encourage industry members to get their walking shoes on and join us for a day of giving,” drake said. “We will also voice our support of efforts to defeat Prop. 60 with our ‘No on Prop. 60’ t-shirts, banners and signs! We are in the final stretch of the movement to stop this power grab to drive the adult industry from California, so please join us and make your voice heard!”

In addition to jessica drake, TEAM WICKED includes Asa Akira, Vanessa Veracruz, Brandy Aniston, Ryan Driller, Brad Armstrong, Katrina Jade, Tyler Nixon, Alison Rey, Venus Lux, Alexis Fawx and others, many of whom have met or exceeded their fundraising goals. Adult industry performers and members may join TEAM WICKED by clicking here. Supporters, fans and anyone who wants to make a difference may inquire about walking with TEAM WICKED by emailing Press@WickedPictures.com.

Supporters may donate by visiting TEAM WICKED’s official AIDS Walk L.A. page here.

Besides her ongoing work with TEAM WICKED and other charitable activities, drake is a highly sought after sexual wellness speaker and educator who lectures at universities and leads seminars and workshops around the world. She is the writer, producer, and director of the video series “jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex,” which has received critical acclaim from industry stalwarts AVN, XBIZ, Fleshbot.com and others, as well as mainstream outlets like The Huffington Post, Cosmopolitan, Refinery29 and many others.

Established in 1985, AIDS Walk Los Angeles was the world’s first walk dedicated to fighting HIV/AIDS. Over the last 31 years, the event has raised more than $79 million for HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment, and advocacy programs. For more, please visit http://apla.org or http://la.aidswalk.net/.

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, visit http://www.aidswalk.net/.
