SAN DIEGO—Liberty Media Holdings (LMH), parent company of leading online gay adult content provider, Corbin Fisher, has announced that it has followed up 2010's record donation to Equality Florida (EQFL) with a second donation to the non-profit organization of $60,000. EQFL, a St. Petersburg-based non profit, made headlines in 2010 when they were instrumental in overturning Florida's ban on same-sex couples right to adopt children. Corbin Fisher was proud to support EQFL with the largest single donation in the organization's history.
“We're grateful that Corbin Fisher continues to support our efforts to end discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity," said Nadine Smith, executive director for Equality Florida. "They have invested deeply in our work of educating and mobilizing fair-minded Floridians who believe in the values of equality and justice."
While Corbin Fisher's production offices recently moved from Florida to Las Vegas, the company remains a staunch supporter of the work EQFL does. “We feel their efforts are crucial in leading the fight for equal rights. Much of the country looks to the legal battles in Florida as precedent-setting,” said Marc Randazza, general counsel for Corbin Fisher.
“The legal battles for equality are never over and can be tremendously expensive,” added Corbin Fisher CEO Jason Gibson. “As a company, we donate lump sums to help defray EQFL's costs, but we also hope to inspire everyone to donate time and support to EQFL and other local organizations fighting for justice for all gay, lesbian, bi and transgender people.”
Corbin Fisher employees themselves are encouraged to donate time and money to charitable organizations through a matching-funds policy and paid time off for volunteer work for accredited groups. Corbin Fisher last year received the Free Speech Coalition Award of Excellence. 2010 also saw the company make news as it spearheaded anti-piracy efforts in the adult entertainment industry. Corbin Fisher has been nominated for two XBiz Awards this year, Web Company of the Year and Gay Site of the Year.
