January 9, 2018—Los Angeles—Today, we mourn the passing of Olivia Nova at age 20. Our hearts go out to her family, friends, and loved ones affected by this terrible loss. Despite her brief time in the industry, she made an impression of warmth and joy on those around her. Her death is among four tragic losses of young performers since November, and the adult industry is still suffering and grieving.
In this difficult time, APAC urges performers to make space for self-care and reach out for professional counseling if needed. If performers are struggling, APAC has adult-friendly mental health resources available. We must come together as a community to support one another.
