John Leslie's Wife and Friends to Hold Memorial Sunday in SF

SAN FRANCISCO—The Center for Sex and Culture (CSC) sent the following announcement regarding a memorial for legendary adult star John Leslie, who died just over one year ago of an apparent heart attack:

"Porn great John Leslie died last December, and we will gather around the anniversary of his birthday to remember a life that changed erotic imagery as much as any other porn star of the Golden Age or beyond.

"Join John’s longtime colleague Richard Pacheco, his widow Kathleen Nuzzo, and the Center for Sex & Culture community to honor John’s memory. A true renaissance man (of porn and many other creative endeavors), John’s life will be commemorated with film clips and a memory circle starring his friends, colleagues and fans."

There will be no charge to attend the memorial, but donations to CSC will be gratefully accepted! Some refreshments will be provided, but attendees are urged to bring something to share if they are so moved, and to please pass the announcement of the memorial on to others who worked with, cared about or were fans of John.

The memorial will take place at 5:30 pm on Sunday, January 29 at the new headquarters of the Center for Sex & Culture, 1349 Mission Street (near 10th Street) in downtown San Francisco.

For more information, email Dr. Carol Queen.
