It’s been over three months since the suicide of porn performer August Ames, and her husband, porn producer and director Kevin Moore, is bothered by what he feels is a lack of support from his colleagues. The tragedy of Ames’ death has been compounded by a tangled controversy involving online shaming, HIV stigma and mental health resources, and Moore worries that his wife is going to be forgotten.

“The business side doesn’t want to acknowledge it because it’s not sexy,” Moore tells Rolling Stone. “The industry wants to stick its head in the sand and just hope it all goes away.”

Back in December, Ames had tweeted that she would not have sex on camera with a male performer who had previously worked in gay porn, known in the industry as a “crossover performer.” Her statement incited a heated debate over homophobia and HIV risk-based discrimination that spread from Twitter to mainstream media coverage. Two days later, Ventura County authorities announced that Ames hanged herself.

When news of Ames’ suicide broke, the scisms grew deeper. Moore believes that cyberbullying pushed her into despair. Some argued for the right of performers to decide who they have sex with, while others believed that prejudice could be criticized without compromising the right to body autonomy.

Mortality in the adult industry continued to get more than the usual amount of media attention when four more young porn stars – Shyla Stylez, Olivia Nova, Yurizan Beltran, and Olivia Lua – died within the three months leading up to the 35th annual Adult Entertainment Expo and Adult Video News Awards, the industry’s biggest convention. Some of these women were struggling with drug abuse, others with mental health issues; but their deaths marked a disturbing trend that many within the industry are still working to address.

So, when the AEE/AVNs rolled around last January, the industry was still dealing with its grief. Thanks to 1,000 free t-shirts baring an Dios de los Muertos-style illustration of Ames – distributed by Evil Angel, the studio where Moore works – her smirking face was omnipresent, looking out over the crowd of fans and starlets. Porn conventions are typically celebrations of fantasy, pleasure, and living in the moment; so these memorial shirts struck an unusually solemn chord.

That dissonance was particularly draining for those who were still in mourning. “She was a very outwardly happy person,” says porn performer Abella Danger, a close friend of Ames. Danger’s Twitter avatar is still an image of the two of them kissing on set, Danger’s hands cradling Ames’ head. “It was such a huge shock that someone that was so happy could be in so much pain.”

The board members of the Adult Performer Advocacy Committee were committed to increasing their outreach at the AEE as well as on social media. If there is truth to Moore’s claim of industry-wide apathy, APAC is trying to fight it. They are in the process of compiling…
