AIDS Healthcare Foundation has enlisted former porn stars Darren James and Derrick Burts to help their “Yes on Measure B” campaign in L.A. County. The law would require all adult film performers to wear condoms, and James and Burts both say they contracted HIV while working in porn. In the above ad, Burts says his employers “obviously” didn’t provide a “safe work environment,” which is, obviously, a lie. Derrick Burts worked exclusively in condom porn, so why he’s lying and how he even has a dog in this fight is unclear. On the other hand, Derrick Burts worked concurrently as a hooker (where he may or may not have used condoms), but didn’t admit to that until L.A. Weekly outed him and posted his Rentboy ad, so maybe he should be campaigning to make condoms mandatory for everyone who advertises on Rentboy? I guess just being HIV-positive–no matter how you got it or what you lied about along the way–is good enough for AHF!
