The largest AIDS clinic in the San Fernando Valley is closing, its officials said Thursday, in part because it's caught in an ironic trap: New drug therapies that offer the best hope yet of beating the disease are too expensive for its budget. The AIDS Healthcare Foundation's clinic in Van Nuys will cease operations in September, said foundation president Michael Weinstein, sending its nearly 500 uninsured or Medi-Cal patients to seek care elsewhere.

Following the lead of Los Angeles County, a state lawmaker is proposing to require that all actors in pornographic films made in California be required to wear condoms to protect them from exposure to AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases. Assembly member Isadore Hall III (D-Compton) has scheduled a Valentine's Day press conference for Thursday at the offices of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation to announce the introduction of legislation similar to the requirement approved by county voters in November.

Regarding "A Howl of Anger" (Nov. 27): There are those in the AIDS arena who agree with many of Elinor Burkett's concerns and conclusions. It's no wonder she doesn't know of us. The pressure from "AIDS Inc." to silence us is shocking. We are "rebels" who see that the rate of new infection and other data mean that the status quo in education, prevention and testing is not working. For our efforts to deal with an epidemic that has far different ramifications as it moves steadily into the heterosexual world, we have been attacked by a number of "AIDS Inc."

Weeks before the new Out of the Closet Thrift Store opened in North Hollywood, the donations were rolling in. "People just give and give," said Peter Frater of Van Nuys, a computer systems operator working as a volunteer at the store. "We were so happy." Location was probably a big part of the success.

Despite the presence of 300 sometimes angry protesters, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday refused to bail out the San Fernando Valley's largest AIDS clinic, and instead chastised the foundation that runs the clinic for alleged fiscal mismanagement. The nonprofit AIDS Healthcare Foundation, one of the county's largest AIDS service providers, came to the supervisors seeking $1.2 million to keep its Sherman Oaks facility open.

In the midst of an ongoing moratorium on shooting in the adult film industry, an advocacy group said a fourth performer has come forward as HIV-positive. The Free Speech Coalition, an adult industry trade group, called a filming moratorium Friday - the second in a month - after a performer tested positive for HIV. The group called a weeklong moratorium last month after actress Cameron Bay tested HIV-positive.  A second performer, Rod Daily, who is romantically linked to Bay, came forward on Twitter and told the Los Angeles Daily News that he too had tested positive - but that case was not officially reported to the industry group and did not result in a new moratorium.
