I spoke last night with Cameron Bay. I am happy to report that she is doing well, that her viral load is very low and that she is getting the help and the medical treatment that she needs to live a long and normal life.
Cameron was very upbeat and nice and didn’t try to place any blame on anyone or anything, she does want to to correct some recent misinformation about events that happened leading up to and after her diagnosis.
Personally, I am proud of Cameron and I am pleased that she chose me to get the truth out. She has been through a lot and it has noticeably matured her an awful lot. I wish Cameron a long, happy and prosperous life.
Here’s her story:
“There have been many misinterpretations of how I got into ATMLA and why my thoughts towards testing have changed. In May of 2013 I met with Mark Schechter in his Orange county office. Brad Tyler introduced me to him. In that meeting Mark told me he was the owner of ATMLA. Mark had been the owner of ATMLA since September of 2012. [I verified this via Shy Love]
In that meeting I introduced myself as Cameron Adams and at that point he began researching that name he then stated that the name was already being used by a gay porn star, then I suggested Cameron Lane and he researched it and it was also used by another gay porn star. I met Mark a week later in his LA office and he said he was changing my name to Cameron Bay. At that time he had introduced me to Shy Love and said she used to run this office but “I now I own the agency.”
After that I met Shy one more time because she put together a charity-bowling event for everyone in the industry. I had not spoken to Shy at any point after that last meeting until I was diagnosed HIV positive. No booking that I did was ever in any way associated with Shy Love.
In August 2013 I found out I was HIV positive. I was dealing with Mark at this time regarding the entire situation and was very overwhelmed. He had advised me to put out a press release divulging my status. He told me to put out the press release because there were other releases in the works regarding my status coming out although I just had found out a few hours before. I decided to listen to him. A few weeks later I get a call from Mark that AHF wanted to help me out and give me medical attention. He then introduced me to Mark McGrath of AHF via email.
At this point I was still 100% wanting to protect the business. I had contacted Mark to see if I could attend the AVN show. He said he would get me tickets to attend AVN at first. Then he contacted me again and said that the FSC did not believe it was the right choice for me to attend because the industry was not ready for it.
He then set up meetings with Diane Duke and I at the begging of 2014. She was supposed to meet me in Arizona and do lunch and she stood me up, (no calls or emails). I then flew to Los Angeles and she was supposed to meet me, and again she no showed, no call and no emails.
I spoke to Mark and he could not believe that she stood me up again. At this point I was so frustrated because I wanted to attempt to help the business and got no help in return so I turned to AHF ( Mark introduced me to them ) they had been there for me the entire time. I feel that the industry turned its back on me and I was distraught over the circumstances and felt if they did this to me they will do it to anyone. I then found out that Mark is telling individuals that I was one of Shy’s messes that he had to clean up.
I do not consider what happen to me a mess that need to be cleaned up. This is my health and my life it is not a mess. I was not brought into ATMLA by Shy Love Mark signed me to ATMLA.
Several times in the last few months it has come to my attention that various people had advised Mark from ATMLA not to book with KINK.com. He was told that they are abusive and the sets are not safe for talent.
Even though he knew this he never advised me of the circumstances, surrounding the shoot. I really wasn’t prepared for what happened to me on that set.
I believe an agent should look out for the talents best interest not his own. He should have made it very clear what the shoot entailed I feel that he was more concerned with his bottom line than safety of his own talent.
I am in no way attempting to harm the industry or anyone in it. I just want to inform everyone what really happened.
