Community College Bars Speech by Adult Film Star

March 22, 2013

Corning Community College barred Conner Habib, a gay film star, from giving a lecture on campus this week, forcing him to instead speak at a local library, The Press & Sun Bulletin reported. The planned lecture was called "Sex, Sexuality, Pornography and Culture," and Habib had been invited by a student group. A spokesman for the college said, “Mr. Habib’s celebrity status as an adult film star is inconsistent with the educational theme of this program."
