The needs of performers in the adult industry are understood better by the men and women who have worked in the trenches, as performers in front of the camera. The demands of any industry can be difficult to understand by outsiders, but in the adult industry, actors and actresses are put into difficult situations every day. Members of A.P.A.G., including our officers and board, have made the decision to work together to make the adult industry a better place for performers now, and in the future. Coming together as one voice, the Adult Performers Actors Guild, we are able to create a plan to legitimize our industry.
We are working to ensure that performers are treated as employees. We will be helping to set up proper pay and benefits structures so that every performer has access to health insurance, disability, social security, and the means to see a financially secure future. While these issues may seem simple, a formality that most of today’s society enjoys with their employment status, performers have been robbed of these basic necessities.
We are organizing to give performers a voice and support from their industry peers, and to create a better performer, and a stronger industry. The goal of the Adult Performers Actors Guild is to earn employee rights, set performer responsibilities, negotiate fair practices, and help performers provide themselves with a better future.
