Recipients of Free Speech Coalition Awards Announced

CANOGA PARK, Calif.—Free Speech Coalition (FSC) is proud to announce the recipients of the 2012 FSC Awards.

"This year’s FSC Awards recipients are a fine example of the industry’s best and brightest," FSC CEO Diane Duke said. "We are honored to recognize their important contributions and to celebrate the recipients among their colleagues and peers. Congratulations!"

Esteemed industry members named to receive awards are as follows:

Legacy Award: Susan Colvin, California Exotic Novelties
This award is given to an individual who, though innovative ideas and successful business practices, has built a solid presence in the adult entertainment industry.  Furthermore, this individual has gone above and beyond to not only protect the rights and freedoms of individuals and businesses within the industry, but also to improve the stature of the industry as a whole. This award is called the Legacy Award rather than a lifetime achievement award because while the individual has done much to build an outstanding legacy, FSC knows that this individual’s great contributions are far from over.
