Etology Of An "Outbreak": The 2013 HIV Porn Timeline

Since I posted my thoughts on Cameron Bay's interview with TRPWL's Michael Whiteacre yesterday, there has been some questions raised about the timing of the events ensuing during the outbreak, and whether or not they cast some light or doubt on Cam's assertions about getting infected on that Kink.com shoot.

In order to aid in at least better understanding the questions, if not to resolve them, I'm issuing this rough timeline of all the events leading to and through the 2013 HIV "outbreak". I will do this without any commentary on my part, so that you can reach your own decision and make your own opinions based on this and other information.

July 10, 2013: Rod Daily's last clean HIV/STI test, using the PASS protocols.

Mid-July 2013 (approx.): Rod Daily and Cameron Bay meet in Los Angeles before they initially "break up", according to Cameron's subsequent testimony.

Mid-July 2013: Cam Bay, Sofia Delgado (later to become "Performer #3" to be infected with HIV, verified in mid-September), and Austin Lynn (who was cleared w/ clean test in September) roomed together at the model house for the agency ATMLA (then led by Shy Love) for approx. 2 weeks. Delgado also shot various scenes in different venues during that period, before returning to her home in Arizona for the Fourth of July holiday.

July 27, 2013: Cameron Bay's last clean HIV/STI test, again using PASS. She flies to San Francisco to meet Daily for Kink.com Public Disgrace shoot.

July 31, 2013: Bay shoots scene for Kink; Daily accompanies her to hospital afterwards for treatment of breast tissue wound.

End of July (approx.): Sofia Delgado's last clean HIV/STI test using PASS.

August 1, 2013: Daily shoots TS scene for gay Kink.com site (with a condom, per Kink protocols). Note that all performers who did scenes with Daily have been cleared as HIV-. Daily then accompanies Bay back to LA before connecting flight by himself back to Arizona. Bay returns to Arizona the next day for further treatment of her breast tissue.

August 3, 2013: Cam Bay tweets "thank you" notice to Xander Corvus (screen partner in Kink scene) for "awesome PD scene". Later that day, though, Bay serves up troubling series of tweets (capped and reposted by TRPWL here) implying some serious shocking life changing event.


August 8, 2013: Sofia Delgado (P#3) does one more shoot in LA before returning to Arizona. It would be her last for that month.

Mid-August 2013: Cameron Bay and Rod Daily temporarily reunite (or at least "meet up") in Arizona.

August 17-19th: Bay hospitalizes herself for stomach issues, gets tested, then retested for HIV due to a bad blood sample.

August 21st: Cam Bay's HIV+ status officially confirmed by FSC/PASS; production moratorium imposed.

August 22nd: Blogger Mike South posts incendiary article claiming Xander Corvus as "Patient Zero"; Corvus strenuously denies.

August 24th: Corvus releases via Twitter his most recent clean HIV/STI test through PASS. (He has tested clean since as well.)

August 27th: PASS announces that all other active performers have been cleared as clean; moratorium will be lifted on August 31st.

September 3rd: Rod Daily announces that he is HIV+ and has been "for weeks"; dodges questions on why he didn't use PASS protocols, but rather, his own private physican for diagnosis. Later that day, ATMLA announces that a shoot scheduled for Sofia Delgado on September 8th in LA would be pushed back to September 15th.

September 6th: PASS confirms "Performer #3" (Sofia Delgado) infection via their protocols; moratorium reinstated.

September 11th: Cameron Bay is featured in an Huffington Post column by Kathleen Miles in which she makes the accusations that she was decieved into performing the Kink.com shoot without a condom, among other issues.

September 17th: PASS announces that based on clean tests of all other performers/contacts of P#3, moratorium can be lifted on Sept. 18th, pending new protocols and fresh tests.

September 18th: Cameron Bay and Rob Daily offically become propagandists for the AIDS Healthcare Foundation's condom mandate campaign and Isadore Hall's original condom bill; appearing in a press conference with AHF President Michael Weinstein.

December 3rd: In a case totally unrelated to the Bay/Daily saga, a gay male performer (subsequently ID'd as TJ Cummings) is confirmed to be infected with HIV using the PASS protocols, prompting another moratorium. No other performer is found to be infected, and the moratorium is allowed to expire on Dec. 13th.

June 25, 2014: Cameron Bay testifies before the California State Senate Labor And Industrial Relations Committee in support of Isadore Hall's AB1576 condom mandate bill, rehashing all her accusations against Kink.com for allegedly getting her infected with HIV. She also added the new charge that she was "forced" to perform without a condom under threat of not being paid for the scene she did. That charge was denied by officials from Kink.com (cited here), citing their stated procedures for paying performers. Also, Sofia Delgado gives brief support testimony; later investigation reveals her formally to be "Performer #3").

July 19, 2014: Cameron Bay is interviewed by TRPWL's Michael Whiteacre, in which the former attempts to clarify her statements against questions raised about her accusations. (results here).


If I missed anything here, by all means let me know. And....what you make of this is your business and yours alone....goodness knows, I have my own.
