Corbin Fisher Commits $60K to GLBT Rights in Florida

SAN DIEGO, Calif.—Gay adult studio Corbin Fisher has donated $60,000 to Equality Florida, one of the largest civil rights organizations in the state. Equality Florida, which is “dedicated to eliminating discrimination based on sexual orientation, race, gender and class,” said the donation is one of the largest single financial contributions it has received.

Corbin Fisher Chief Executive Officer Jason Gibson said his studio regularly donates to gay rights groups and charities, including similar advocacy and education organizations in California and at the national level. The contribution to Equality Florida marks its biggest single donation to a single group, however.

“Beyond gay rights being a cause more than worthy of whatever support we can offer, and beyond Equality Florida being a remarkable and effective organization pursuing that cause, the tireless work of such organizations and the individuals behind them have a very real impact upon the lives of our employees, our friends and our members,” he said.

According to Gibson the contribution followed a chance encounter at a cocktail party.

“Through mutual friends and acquaintances at this function, I had the pleasure of meeting several individuals who spend tremendous amounts of time and energy fighting discrimination against GLBT Floridians,” he recalled. “I was moved by the extent of their enthusiasm, impressed by their dedication, and further impressed by their considerable accomplishments in pursuing their mission to end discrimination and harassment based on sexual orientation.”

The studio also encourages its fans and members of its websites to be generous in supporting charitable causes. Through its websites, newsletter and social networking presence, Corbin Fisher has encouraged contributions to earthquake relief in Haiti, the victims of Hurricane Katrina in the U.S. and relief efforts after the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami.

Moreover, the company supports its more than two dozen employees in charitable efforts. The studio matches employee donations to non-profit organizations. Employees also are allowed to take “service days” during which they skip work to spend time volunteering without sacrificing vacation time or pay. In addition, the studio makes available for pro bono work its general counsel, Marc Randazza.

“We understand that our audience comes to us for the content that we produce, but also recognize and appreciate that having such a large audience offers an opportunity to positively impact a variety of causes,” Chief Operating Officer Brian Dunlap said.
