BIPOC Adult Industry Collective at a Glance

Overview

Founded in response to conversations regarding racism in adult entertainment, BIPOC Adult Industry Collective understood that by working together we can bring lasting change. BIPOC -AIC knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives.

Mission

Supporting the diverse community of BIPOC adult performers and sex-workers within the adult industry through mutual aid and advocacy with dignity and respect.


Vision

To create equal financial opportunities for BIPOC people in the adult industry, normalize BIPOC presence, abolish racist language and stereotypes, and further our community's skills in front of and behind the camera. 

 

Community Agreement & Values

Values

Centering the BIPOC experience in the adult industry.

BIPOC experience is unique in the industry because of the way our bodies are fetishized and compartmentalized into narrow categories. The collective offers a space where BIPOC people can discuss freely the specific obstacles we face in the industry and we let these experiences light the way for needed change.

Embracing diversity within the BIPOC community.

The BIPOC community is very diverse and we celebrate all our differences. We acknowledge difference based on skin tone, body size, gender expression and physical ability and that these differences bring unique personal perspectives. Our different voices show the expanse of the BIPOC experience and we strive for all voices to be heard. ​

​​

Mutual Respect

How we treat each other on and off set is crucial to the well-being of the community.  We encourage respectful dialogue and a true effort to listen and understand one another. ​

Welcoming Allies

We invite those who support our cause to work alongside our community. Non-BIPOC allies are invited to join our efforts but we also ask them to respect our safe spaces. ​

 

Our Work

BIPOC Adult Industry Collective is a performer and sex worker-led collective that places sex workers at every level of leadership and decision making. Learn more about what we do, who we help, and how we work every day to promote positive change.

Education

Fostering independence and financial empowerment for performers through skills share & virtual workshops.

Financial Assistance

Putting money directly in the hands of sex workers in need who work in NSFW Adult media through our mutual aid fund.
